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
