Moon Sighting Appeal for Muharram 1438H


دائره مہدویہ شمالی امریکہ


Faqueer Abulfatah Syed Nusrat makes an earnest appeal to all the brothers and sisters in Faith to keep alive the Sunnah of our beloved ProphetSAS and try to sight the New Moon on the 29th of ZilHajj 1437H which happens to be (TODAY) on Saturday, the 1st of October 2016 in North America.

Numerous traditions (Ahadith) promise immense Divine reward for those who try to keep a Sunnah of the ProphetSAS alive. Please remember what our Imam, the Promised MahdiPBUH taught us. He said that our religion is the Book of God and following Muhammad, the Messenger of God (Allah bless him and give him peace).

Totally depending upon declarations based on astronomical calculations of the "experts" we cannot do away with the Sunnah of the ProphetSAS viz. based on both the word and the deed of the ProphetSAS. Astronomical calculations can only help us in determining the possible date and time of visibility of New Moon. However, sighting the New Moon is a requirement of Shariah.

Hence, it is a matter of Sawab (divine reward). This humble Faqueer, assures you all that if at least ten percent of the Muslims make an effort to sight the New Moon on the 29th of the Lunar Month, there would be no dispute anywhere in the world about the new month.

So let us follow the Sunnah and be rewarded by our Lord, the Merciful, and the Munificent.

May Allah keep us on the right way, Ameen.
