Announcement on Eid ul Fitr

We shall be celebrating Eid ul Fitr (insha-allah) according to the decision made by the Jamati-Ahle-Sunnat. Their decision will be made on Thursday insha-allah after receiving news from South Africa.

Astronomical data suggests the moon will not be visible anywhere in the Northern hemisphere on Thursday including Morocco. However, it will be possible to see the moon in South Africa with binoculars.  Therefore if we receive positive sighting from South Africa of the moon, Eid will then be on Friday otherwise we will complete 30 days of Ramadan and Eid will be celebrated on Saturday.

UPDATE: The Hilal of Shawwal 1436 was not sighted in the UK/East of UK on Thursday 16th July 2015 (29th Ramadan 1436 AH). We have also received reports from Morocco Awqaf Ministry of negative sighting. Therefore, the Jamati-Ahle-Sunnat have decided that the month of Ramadan 1436 AH will complete 30-days and the  month of Shawwal 1436 AH will start from Saturday 18th July 2015, Insha-Allah.
