Announcement of Islamic Centre of England

Ramadhan Mubarak

In the name of God

Based upon (1) information received from a number of reputable astronomical centres and the certainty they give, (2) consideration of the fatawa that use the principle of the horizon as a standard and which take it as sufficient to see the first crescent with optical aids before the setting of the sun, and (3) in accordance with the standards of Islamic law that most Maraji’ are unanimous about, Thursday 18th June 2015 has been announced as the first day of the Holy Month of Ramadan in the UK.

It is necessary to keep in mind that, based upon the fatawa of Maraji’ that say that the criterion of seeing of the crescent with the unaided eye, in the area where one lives is needed, one must be certain of seeing the crescent with the unaided eye. Of course every muqallid based upon taklif and the responsibility according to which he acts will be rewarded by God.

Therefore we would like to extend our congratulations to you on the beginning of the Month of the Divine Banquet. We ask God Almighty to grant all fasting believers days of increasing spirituality and ask you to remember us in your prayers.
