Hilal Statement – 1 Muharram 1440 AH – Moonsight Confirmation

There being no confirmed reports of the crescent being sighted in the UK (the path of this month’s crescent does not allow us to share the horizon with places in which crescent is already sighted), tomorrow Tuesday 11 September will be the last day of Zilhaj. The first day of Muharram according to the criteria laid down by Ayatullah Seestani will be Wednesday 12 September and Ashura will be on Friday 21 September 2018. According to Ayatullah Seestani’s recommendation, we have been encouraged to have one day of Ashura in all centres in the locality and will therefore be commemorating Ashura on Thursday 20 September 2018.
