The first day's crescent moon (Hilal) on the UK horizon can be sighted in most of the months, Alhamdulillah. However, observers from throughout the UK are needed to overcome the effect of cloudy weather so that the Hilal can be sighted in all 12 months of the year, InshaAllah.

Therefore, if you (or your mosque committee) are willing to help revive the Sunnah of Moon Sighting in any of the UK regions (or Ireland), please email us for more details. Our ICOUK members can help you find suitable locations and/or provide any necessary training, as well as introduce you to any existing social media groups (if you wish).

Please see the UK Regions Map below and if you are willing to help support this noble initiative from your city/borough then do not hesitate to email us (via our on-line Contact Us form).  JazakAllahu Khaira! [Note: for brevity, we have only included (major) cites and not towns]
