Eid Moonsighting 2016
Be part of a beautiful sunnah and come join us to sight the new moon for Shawwal 2016 / 1437H
The moon will be a bit difficult to see this time so we need any many eyes on the skies as we can! Bring some dates to break your fast + your prayer mat. This is a great educational experience for the kids!
Moonsighting is a big part of Islam as we follow the lunar calendar. The Prophet s.a.w. has encouraged us to sight the moon by saying:
“Fast when you see the New Moon. Celebrate Eid when you see it again.”
Register with us using the form below by Monday 4th July at 5pm to join us for this scenic and spiritual communal obligation.
When: Tuesday 5th July 4:30pm (sunset at 5:05pm)
Where: Port Hills area (exact location TBC by email)
What to bring: Warm clothes, something to break your fast, prayer mat, ruler & optical aid (optional)
* We will be providing a moonsighting chart and giving a quick tutorial on how to sight the moon.
** Please note that parking is limited so we will have to restrict numbers. If possible, please organize to carpool with friends so that more people can attend!
