Crescent Moon Visibility of Rabi-ul Awwal 1446 AH

The crescent visibility map below for Rabi-ul Awwal 1446 (RHS) shows that the moon will be born on 3 September 2024 at 01:56 GMT/UT, but it will not be visible by the naked eye anywhere in the UK to Morocco region on that date. However, on 4 September 2024, the moon may be visible in Morocco, but [may] not in the UK. Hence, the month of Rabi-ul Awwal is most likely to start on 5 and 6 September 2024 in Morocco and the UK, respectively, InShaAllah. [UK Major Lunar Standstills Q&A] Note that there will be a Partial Lunar Eclipse on 17-18 September 2024 across the UK, Europe and most of the world. [Why look for 3 days]
