Moon sighting information

The Islamic Law has a clear methodology for determining the beginning of the lunar month for devotional purposes. Every month is to commence upon the initial physical sighting of the waxing crescent moon on the western horizon of the evening sky after sunset. The four schools of Sunni Islam hold that this is an unambiguous, clear textual proof that is not open to subsequent interpretation. Quakers Hill Masjid adheres to this Prophetic methodology. With the assistance of Moon Sighting Australia and their experienced team of crescent observers, we obtain information concerning the beginning of the lunar months.

Jamadiyul Oula 1439 – Hilaal has not been sighted anywhere in Australia on Wednesday 17th of January 2018, therefore the month of Jamadiyul Oula starts from Friday 19th of January 2018.
