Start of Rabi al Thaani 1440

There was no reported sighting of the crescent in the evening of Friday 07 December 2018. As such, the month of Rabi al Awwal 1440 ends on Saturday the 8th of December with 30 days.


Consequently, the United Ulama Council of South Africa (UUCSA) has determined that 1st of Rabi al Thaani 1440 corresponds to Sunday 09 December 2018.


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 Jumaadal Ulaa 1440 shall be after sunset on Sunday 06 January 2019, in-sha-Allah.
