Ramadan Mubarak everyone!

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,

The sighting of the moon for the blessed month of Ramadan yesterday (Saturday night)has not been confirmed, so Sunday will be the completion of 30 days of the month of Sha’ban. Monday will be the first day of the blessed month of Ramadan.

Bukhari and Muslim reported on the authority of Abdullah Ibnu Omar (may Allah be pleased with them) that the Messenger of Allah (saw) mentioned Ramadan and said: "Do not fast till you see the new moon, and do not break fast till you see it; but if the weather is cloudy complete it (thirty days)."


“The Month of Ramadhan, in which the Qur’an was revealed, is guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong). So whoever of you sights (the crescent on the first night of) the month (of Ramadhan), he must fast that month, and whoever is ill or on in a state of traveling, then the missed days must be made up from other days. Allah intends for you ease and not difficulty. (He wants that you) complete the number of days and glorify Him for having guided you, and that you may be thankful to Him.” [Al-Baqarah: 185]

“Whoever witnesses the crescent of the month, he must fast the month." [TMQ 2:185]

In the narration of Muslim, the Messenger of Allah (saw) said: "The month of Ramadhan may consist of twenty-nine days. So do not fast until you have sighted it (the new moon) and do not break fast, until you have sighted it (the new moon of Shawwal), and if the sky is cloudy for you, then complete it (thirty days)."

Muslim also reported on the authority of Abdullah Ibnu Omar that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said: “The month of Ramadhan may consist of twenty-nine days; so when you see the new moon observe fast and when you see (the new moon again at the commencement of the month of Shawwal) then break it, and if the sky is cloudy for you, then calculate it (and complete thirty days)."

O Allah, allow us to complete Ramadan and do not exclude us from its reward; O Allah, make us amongst those saved by You on this month of forgiveness; O Allah, allow us to witness the night of Al-Qadar and honor us with its reward; O Allah, unify the Muslim Ummah and gather us under the shade of the flag of the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him, Ameen.

Bro Ali and all those in the Ummah Film family and my fellow Bros and Sis's here - Ramadhan Mubarak!! May your month be successful in all aspects. Ameen. I am here on the West Coast of the US and we are not starting til Tuesday, though ISNA declared Monday to be the first day - so kinda frustrating - though I know its an annual thing - this disagreement on the first day. Its just that in the same country, two different days?? Oh well. Peace to all. -Anees-

salam & ramadhan karim!
actually ramadhan started on tuesday september 2 on the east coast. it is really confusing becase all calendars on like islamicfinder.com have the blessed Month of Ramadhan a day behind the schedule here.

@Sister Diana - thanks for the info. It looks like it depends on the state, not just the coast!I just am dreaming about the one year where the announcement will be "The Ummah will begin fasting on (a date)" or something to that effect - that we will have a consensus as to what we follow (maybe moon-sighting in any countty) and then all 1.2 billion of us start fasting. Anyways, don't mean to focus on the slight neg's.Once again, may we all have a successful Ramadhan.
ur Bro in Islam,
