Despite the effort of many people throughout the country, all the observers reported negative sighting in the UK even though we had clear conditions in many places on Thursday evening. We have not received news of actual sighting (Muhaqaq Ru’ayat e Basri) from anywhere to east of UK or the Ministry of Awqaf in Morocco who have 278 official Hilal sighting locations. We have therefore decided that the Month of Sha’ban will be of 30 days and the first day of Ramadhan in the United Kingdom will be on Saturday 21st July 2012 Insha Allah.
Saudi Arabia had 29 days of Sha’ban and have commenced the Month of Ramadhan from Friday 20th July based on the PRE CLACULATED UMM UL QURA CALENDAR and erroneous sighting claims by just 2 witnesses. All 9 official locations in Saudi Arabia with the aid of Telescopes reported negative sighting! No other place in world officially verified this sighting claim.
