This is a quick update for those who are eager to know whether Ramadan will be tomorrow Friday 20th or Sarturday 21st of July. So far the date for Ramadan 2012 has not yet been confirmed. I know of websites and some mosques who may have confirmed this already based on calculations and estimates. A lot of people are forgetting the tradition and sunnah taught by our prophet Muhammed (pbuh).
Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) said:
'Whenever you sight the new moon observe fast, and when you sight it break it and if the sky is cloudy for you, then observe fast for thirty days.'
Even if we do have an estimate for Ramadan, it needs to be made clear that it is only an estimate before making such confirmation.
We will await confirmation for the sighting of the new moon from The Coordination Committee of Major Mosques and Islamic Centres here in the UK. Once we have confirmation we will announce this on our website, Facebook and Twitter pages.
