Moonsighting: Start of Jumaadal Ulaa 1441

There were no reports of confirmed sighting of the crescent in the evening of Thursday 26 December 2019. As such, in South Africa, the month of Rabi al Thaani will end on Friday 27th December 2019, with 30 days.


Consequently, the United Ulama Council of South Africa (UUCSA) has determined that the 1st of Jumaadal Ulaa 1441 corresponds to Saturday 28th December 2019.


The Jamiatul Ulama South Africa’s Central Hilaal Committee acts on behalf of UUCSA in the coordination of the sighting of the moon.


In the light and spirit of the Sunnah, we appeal to jamaats to go out and seek the sighting of the new moon every month. The next sighting of the moon for the determining the start of Jumaadal Ukhraa 1441 shall be after sunset on Saturday 25 January 2020, in-sha-Allah.
