FRIDAY 12TH OCTOBER 2007
There being no possibility of sighting the new crescent in Europe and based on the ruling of Ayatullah Seestani (May the Almighty grant him a long life) of differing horizons, tomorrow, Saturday 13th October will be the 30th day of Ramadan 1428.
The Office of Ayatullah Seestani in London has made the following announcement:
By His Name The Most High
The sighting of the moon crescent for the month of Shawwal has been ascertained by His Eminence Ayatullah Al-Udhma as-Sayyid Ali Al-Hussaini as-Seestani (long may he live) in Najaf. Tomorrow Saturday the first day of Shawwal 1428 Hijri (13 October 2007) will be the auspicious day of Eid Al-Fitr in the Middle East.
As for European countries, Saturday will be the last day of the holy month of Ramadhan, based on His Eminence’s ruling of non-unity of horizons.
Our heartiest congratulations go out to all momineen
May Allah accept your A’mal.
