Start of Jumaad al Aakhirah 1440

There was no reported sighting of the crescent in the evening of Tuesday, 05 February 2019. As such, the month of Jamaadul Ulaa 1440 ends on Wednesday the 6th of February 2019, with 30 days.


Consequently, the United Ulama Council of South Africa (UUCSA) has determined that, that, in South Africa, 1st of Jumaadal Ukhraa 1440 corresponds to Thursday 07 February 2019.


The Jamiatul Ulama South Africa’s Central Hilaal Committee acts on behalf of UUCSA in the coordination of the sighting of the moon.


In the light and spirit of the Sunnah, we appeal to jamaats to go out and seek the sighting of the new moon every month. The next sighting of the moon for the determining the start of Rajab 1440 shall be after sunset on Thursday, 07 March 2019, in-sha-Allah.
