Crescent Moon Visibility of Rabi-ul Thani/Akhir 1446 AH

The crescent visibility map below for Rabi-ul Thani 1446 (RHS) shows that the moon will be born on 2 October 2024 at 18:49 GMT/UT, but it will not be visible by the naked eye anywhere in the UK to Morocco region on that date or the next day. However, on 4 October 2024, the moon may be visible in Morocco but [may] not be in the UK until the next day. Hence, the month of Rabi-ul Thani is most likely to start on 5 and 6 October 2024 in Morocco and the UK, respectively (applying the "30-days complete" rule), InShaAllah. [UK Major Lunar Standstills Q&A] Note that there will be an Annular Solar Eclipse on 2 October 2024 across South America.
