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 of Zul Hijja 1443. Following is the text of the statement:
The new crescent (central conjunction) for the month of Zul Hijja 1443H will be born on Wednesday, June 29 2022 at 02:52 (GMT) that is 05:52, Beirut time.
As noticed in the picture above: on Wednesday evening, the crescent can be seen whether by the naked eye or the armed eye in many of the regions, we share a part of the night with it . Thus, Thursday, June 29,2022 is the first day of ZuL Hijja and Saturday July 9 is the first day of the ADHA EID according to the jurisprudential opinion of His Eminence, the late Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (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 .
We pray that Allah, The Most Exalted, grants success to the pilgrims and accepts their worshipping acts. May God make it a blessed EID that brings about dignity, joy and relief to the Islamic nation. He is the Most Generous.
