We encourages everyone to go out to look for the new crescent moon (hilaal) on the evening of Wednesday, June 17th in anticipation of the beginning of the Islamic month of Ramadan.
If the moon is indeed seen Wednesday, June 17th, it will mark the beginning of the blessed month of Ramadan with its first day of fasting on Thursday, June 18th.
During month of Ramadan Isha prayer will start at 10:10
Please go out to look for the new crescent moon on both nights and submit your moon-sighting report here. The crescent (hilaal) would be visible shortly after sunset, slightly to the left, and above where the sun had set. It is a beautiful experience to sight its emergence, and it is a sunnah of our noble Prophet, sal Allahu alayhi wa salam, that we hope the ummah revives.
