EID Mubarak – Announcement for Eid 1435 / 2014

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

Eid-ul-Fitr Announcement: Monday, July 28, 2014

There have been no verified reports of moon sighting anywhere in the world that shared part of the night with the USA, and hence in accordance with our global moon sighting policy, we will complete the month of Ramadan. Insha-Allah, Eid-ul-Fitr will be on Monday, July 28, 2014.

Moon Sighting Policy

The Eid Committee has agreed to the following common and unified policy for global moon sighting:

 1.  Location of the actual sighting can be anywhere in the world that shares part of the night with the USA

2. The sighting report must be from a trust worthy source such as country’s official announcement, council of scholars, or a reputable Islamic organization

3. The moon conjunction (i.e. birth of the new moon) must have taken place at the location of the reported moon sighting

This policy has been reviewed by our local scholars and Imams.

We ask Allah SWT to accept all our good deeds. We request your prayers and support in our endeavors.

Eid Mubarak from all of us.

Jazakum Allahu Khairun

Criteria for Ramadhan & Eid Announcement

Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu

Dear Respected and Beloved Members of the Austin Muslim Community:

As announced in the past, Nueces Mosque follows the Islamic Center of Greater Austin (ICGA). ICGA follows global moon sighting for determining the beginning and end of Ramadan.

Based on this criterion, the blessed month of Ramadan will begin either on Saturday, June 28, 2014 or Sunday June 29, 2014.

Moon sighting reports from any Islamic center in North America or any official moon sighting report from any Muslim country will be accepted.

We understand the various opinions that exist on this matter within the Austin Muslim community.  Some prefer local moon sighting only, some prefer moon sighting in North America, while others accept reports of moon sighting from any part of the globe. All these opinions are permissible by the Shariah without any doubts.  So let us respect the decisions of all local Islamic centers that follow any one of the above criteria; and let us focus our attention on preparing for the arrival of the blessed month of Ramadan and to plan on getting maximum benefit from the days of fasting and nights of prayers.

We look forward to seeing all of you at Masjid Khadija and Nueces Masjid and getting to meet each of you personally.

Please join us and our Imams in our Iftar and daily Taraweeh programs. A separate posting and e-mail will be sent with all the details of Nueces Mosque’s Ramadan program Insha’ALLAH.

We are happy to announce that Sheikh Dr. Ahmad Abdul-Khaliq will lead Taraweeh prayers at Masjid Khadijah Insha-ALLAH.

Multiple students who have memorized the Quran will be leading the Tarweeh prayers at Nueces Masjid Insha-ALLAH under the supervision of Shaikh Mohamed-Umer Esmail.


We ask Allah SWT that you and your families have a blessed month of Ramadan. Ameen.

 Jazakum Allahu Khairun
