posted Jul 21, 2020, 5:01 PM by Shakir Pandor

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته،

The Hilal Council of Canada received confirmed reports of sightings of the new crescent for the month of Dhul Hijjah from various locations. Therefore  the 1st of Hijjah, 1441 will be on Wednesday, July 22, 2020 insha'Allah. Based on this, Eid Al-Adhaa will be on Friday, July 31, 2020, and the day of Arafah will be on Thursday, July 30, 2020.

We pray Allah blesses the entire Ummah with all forms of Khair, accepts the Hajj of all those performing it, keeps us all in His protection, remove this pandemic from the Ummah, give us Tawfeeq to do what is right and abstain from what is wrong, blesses the Ummah with a joyous Eid and allow us to use these blessed days in doing as many good deeds as possible, 'Āmīn.

Shawwal 1441

posted May 22, 2020, 10:57 PM by Shakir Pandor

The Hilal Council of Canada received no confirmed reports of sightings of the new crescent. Therefore Saturday May 23, 2020 is the 30th of Ramadhan,1441 and the 1st of Shawwal, 1441 will be on Sunday, May 24, 2020 insha'Allah. 

After a long and thorough verification by the Hilal Council of Canada we are delighted to declare that Eid-ul-Fitr will be insha Allah on Sunday and completing 30 days for this blessed month of Ramadan. The council adopts global sighting and there were no satisfying and valid sightings around the world that meet our criteria. The new moon was born only at 1:38 pm (ET) on Friday May 22 which makes it impossible to be see east of the Americas unless a sighting was of the waning moon of Ramadan (al-Urjoon al-Qadeem). The waning Moon is sometimes faintly visible because the Earth also reflects sunlight as a dull glow onto the Moon. This phenomenon is called earthshine or Da Vinci glow, and it is most noticeable in April and May.
Eid Mubarak!

Sha'ban 1441

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته،

The Hilal Council of Canada received no confirmed reports of sightings of the new crescent. Therefore Wednesday March 25, 2020 is the 30th of Rajab,1441 and the 1st of Sha'ban, 1441 will be on Thursday, March 26, 2020 insha'Allah. 

Sha'ban has many merits. The Prophet 'alaihis Salaatu was Salaam used to fast most if notall of it and the 15th night has a special virtue on its own. With our current situation, it is of utmost importance that we increase our fasting, recitation of the Qur'aan, Dhikr of Allah, making Istighfaar (seeking His forgiveness) and most importantly abstaining from sin and disobedience. We pray Allah keeps the entire Ummah in His protection, remove this pandemic from the Ummah, give us Tawfeeq to do what is right and abstain from what is wrong and allow us to use this blessed month in preparing for Ramadhan, and doing as many good deeds as possible, 'Āmīn.
