News June 5, 2016June 5, 2016.

Just a short time ago, Fatwa-Online was informed of the official decision and announcement of the High Judiciary Council of Saudi Arabia that since the moon of Ramadhaan was sighted this evening, here in Saudi Arabia, we have completed twenty nine (29) days of Sha’baan (1437 A.H.), in accordance with the hadeeth of the Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu `alayhi wa sallam):

“Fast when you see the crescent [of Ramadhaan]. If it is obscured to you, then complete thirty days of Sha’baan. And break your fast when you see the crescent [of Shawwaal]. If it is obscured to you then fast thirty days”. [transmitted by al-Bukhaaree and Muslim].

Subsequently, we shall be starting our taraaweeh prayers tonight (Sunday 5 June, 2016) after the ‘Ishaa. prayer, in preparation for the first fast of Ramadhaan tomorrow – Monday 6 June, 2016, in shaa.-Allaah.
