UK Hilal Testimony/Declaration

On Saturday, 6th July 2024 (29th Dhul Hijjah 1445 AH) the Hilal of Muharram 1446 was not sighted in the UK (Local), according to the rules of Shariah. However, we have received one testimony of a sighting with binoculars, which was insufficient. Therefore, the month of Dhul Hijjah 1445 AH will complete 30 days and the month of Muharram 1446 AH will start on Monday, 8th July 2024 (making Ashura on Wednesday, 17th July 2024), InShaAllah. Signed by (Ulama Panel): Maulana Abdullah Ahmed, Maulana Yusuf Mota, Shaykh Suliman Gani, Imam Sabri Alabri. Witnessed by: Riyaz Bhikha, Eng. Qamar Uddin, ICOUK (6/7/2024 23:30 BST).

The data proves that UK-only sightings fully meet the rules of Shariah. [Read more]
