The crescent moon (hilal) sighting and Ramadhan

Last night everyone was looking for the new moon so that Ramadhan 1437 AH could commence. The new moon was born at 2:59 (UT) on Sunday 5th June 2016. Since the new moon was so young it was not expected to be visible to the naked eye in Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados or Guyana.
Since most Muslims in our country follow the actual sighting of the moon in our part of the world, the Ramadhan did not start today. However, since in Islam we follow the lunar calendar, then a month can only have 29 or 30 days.
As such we know for sure that the Holy month of Ramadhan will commence tomorrow Tuesday 7th June 2016.


Ramadhan Mubarak to all Muslims throughout the world.
