Sighting of the Hilal For Rabi ul Thani 1433
On Wednesday, 22 February 2012 (29 Rabiul Awwal 1433 AH) many people from throughout UK have attempted to sight the crescent moon (Hilal) of Rabiul Thani after sunset. None of the groups were able to sight the Hilal, as most places were totally cloudy and raining.
However, we have received reliable sighting reports (Muhaqaq-Ruyat-Basari) from Morocco. (Click here to see Fax)
Therefore, the Wifaq ul Ulama have decided that the month of Rabiul Awwal 1433 AH will have 29 days and the month of Rabiul Thani 1433 AH will start from Thursday 23 February 2012, Insha-Allah.
