The Muslim Voice Audio

The new Hijri year of 1444 will begin on Saturday, July 30, according to the Umm al-Qura calendar, according to an announcement made by the Saudi Supreme Court on Thursday. The identical proclamation was made by the National Moon Sighting Committee (NMSC) of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA).

The court ruled that because the crescent for the month of Muharram was not visible on Thursday, today, Friday, will actually be the 30th day of the month of Dhul-Hijjah 1443, which corresponds to the 29th of July.

As a result, Ashura’s fasting on Muharram 10 will take place on Monday, August 8.

Similarly, the Muharram crescent was not seen in Nigeria; however, the National Moon Sighting Committee (NMSC) reports that His Eminence, the Sultan of Sokoto, has declared Saturday, July 30, to be the first day of Muharram 1444.
