Ramadan Begins Thu 13/09/07.. InshaaAllah

Asalaamu’alaykum

There are 29/30 days in an Islamic Month.

Each month is confirmed by the sighting of the new moon, or by the completion of thirty days of that month – same applies for Ramadan, it is either confirmed by the sighting of the new moon, or by the completion of thirty days of Sha’baan.

The Prophet Muhammad (s) said: “Do not fast until you see the crescent, and do not break fast until you see the crescent; but if there are clouds, complete the calculation of thirty days.” (Bukhari/Muslim)

Today (Tue 11/09/07) was the 29th of Shabaan, as the moon has not been sighted by a Muslim anywhere in the world – we are to complete thirty days of Sha’baan as the Prophet (s) instructed us and start fasting for Ramadaan the day after. Thus tommarow (Wed 12/09/07) is the 30th of Sha’baan; making Thur (13/09/07) the 1st of Ramadaan.

~ And Allah Knows Best.

Ameen! (so that du’aa includes you too!)

Takecare Brother Murtaza, may Allah accept our Siyaam (Fasting).

Abu Said al-Khudri reported that the Messenger of Allah (s), said: “No servant fasts one day in the path of Allah, except that Allah removes the hellfire seventy years further away from his face.” [This is related by the group,” except for Abu Dawud.]
