Muharram Al-Haram 1431H Declaration


Faquir Abulfatah Syed Nusrat hereby declares that the New Moon for the month of Muharam Al-Haram 1431H was sighted by our Shahideen (Eye Witnesses) at Los Angeles, CA by Mr. Syed Rafi-ul-Haq who gave his evidence on oath and we also have positive Moon Sighting Reports from Miami, Florida, Blacksburg, Virginia and San Jose, CA. As such the 1st of Muharram Al-Haram will be on Friday, the 18th of December, 2009 in North America and the Aashura (10th of Muharram) will be on Sunday, December 27 2009.

All other Shahideen, who made an effort and could not sight the moon but for the sake of Allah reported to this humble Faqueer their inability to sight the New Moon, will surely be rewarded by Allah.

May Allah reward all of the brothers and sisters who are doing this community service and following the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet (May Allah bless and give him peace).This Faqueer hopes they will continue this good work on the 29th of every Lunar Month in the future.

Let us pray Allah, the Almighty that the New Year 1431H brings peace and prosperity for one and all.
