The sighting of the Hilaal has become a recurring problem; it causes not only a loss of respect and creditability towards our religious elders (Ulema-e-Deen), but also creates a rift and division among the general Muslim population (Ummah).
The fact is that “Hilaal sighting” turns into a fiasco every time and this situation is truly painful for all the members of the Muslim community. There is however a very simple and in fact the only solution, which is “Sighting of the moon by Shariah compliance”.
Alhumdulillah, Rahmat-e-Alam Foundation makes announcements for the beginning of the Islamic lunar months by using proper Sharia compliant moon sighting methods, not only at the time of the month of Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha, but also at the beginning of every single month of the lunar (Hijrah) Calendar.
We have also established essential contacts within North America by identifying approximately seventeen credible Hilaal sub-committees, who all work along with each other and make a joint decision about the sighting of the Hilaal.
