In the Name of Allah , The Compassionate , The Merciful
The Juristic Office of the Institution of His Eminence, the late Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah (ra), issued a statement concerning the beginning of the month of zul Qida 1443H.
Following is the text of the statement:
The new crescent (central conjunction) for the month of Zul Qida, 1443H will be born on Monday 30 May 2022 at 11:30 (GMT) that is 14:30 Beirut summer time.
As noticed in the picture above, sighting is possible on Monday evening with the armed eye only in some of the regions of north America including the cities of Mexico and Woodland, which we ( In Lebanon) do not share part of the night with in this time of the year, although they share a part of the night with other regions where the dawn emerges after the sunset in the regions of sighting. Thus , Wednesday, the first of June 2022, is the first day of Zul Qida in the regions that do not share a part of the night with the regions of sighting, while Tuesday May 31 is the first day of Zul Qida in the regions that do share a part of the night with the regions of sighting, according to the jurisprudential opinion of His Eminence the late Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah (ra) who deems it enough to sight the crescent, whether by the naked eye or by the aid of telescopes, in any region with which we share a part of the night.
May Allah, The Most Exalted, relief us and grant us success to do what pleases Him. He is the Most Merciful.
