Assalaamu ‘Alaikum


There were no confirmed reports of the sighting of the #Hilaal marking the start of Ramadan 1443. As such, in South Africa, Shabaan 1443 ends on Sat 02 Apr 2022, with 30 days. This means 1st Ramadan 1443 will correspond to Sunday 03 April 2022, in-sha-Allah.


The first Taraweeh prayers will be after Esha, on Saturday 02 April 2022, with the first fast observed on Sunday, 03 April 2021, in-sha-Allah.
The Jamiatul Ulama South Africa wishes all Muslims Ramadan Mubarak. May the Almighty accept our acts of worship, devotions and charitable deeds, as we observe this special months under continuing challenging circumstances. We pray for ease and peace throughout the world. Aameen.
