Do you want to make sure that you are celebrating the night of the 15th of Sha’baan on the correct date?
If you want to benefit from the correct date of 15th of Sha’baan then I am afraid following the Hizb ul Ulama calendar is not an option. Why not ask yourself this very important question based on logic and common sense: Why is there a difference of TWO whole days between Hizb ul Ulama declared month of Sha’baan and beginning of Sha’baan in India. As we are fully aware that the official Hilal committees of India only declare the new month after actual sighting. Is somebody from Hizb ul Ulama going to claim that the Hilal ‘claimed to be seen by Hizb ul Ulama’ in Saudi Arabia was invisible to the billions of Muslims in the Indian subcontinent?
