Subject: " Saudis have entered the house through back doors !!! "
(BISMILAAHI R'RAHMAANI R'RAHEEM)
Dear Brothers & Sisters
Assalaamu alaikkum wa Rahmathllaahi wa Barakaathu hu.
On Tuesday the moon was half and was overhead at Fajr. On Wednesday slight concavity was seen but the horns were not prominent nor distinct. Today - Thursday (5th Nov) at Fajr the line has caved in well and the horns too were prominent as well as distinct.
The moon attained the shape of a big crescent, in the Last Quarter, on Thursday.
Hence the following Thursday (12 Nov) will be the 1st of Safar 1437.
If one keeps on watching the moon in coming days one can see the moon becoming thinner and thinner and closer and closer to Eastern horizon, day by day.
On coming Tuesday (10 Nov) one can see Al urjoon Al qadeem described in Noble Qur'aan in verse 36:39 as the last visible phase for a month.
On Wednesday the waning moon will not be seen anywhere in the world as it is the Day of Conjunction or the last day of Muharram 1437.
The current month of Muharram is of 29 days starting on Wednesday & ending on Wednesday as per moon phases.
For ISNA/FCNA, today is 23rd day of Muharram, which is the correct date as per the moon-phases. According to Sharia, the American Muslims who are living on the Magrib side (Western ) can start the day as well as months only after those in the Eastern countries. But in Saudi Arabia, the date given is 22 nd for Thursday !!
The Saudis started the month on the next day of Americans. Saudis have entered the house through back doors !!!
The Saudis are in error because they ignored the Sign of Allaah - Solar Eclipse which occurred on the 30th day of Dhul Qaidah (Sunday - 13th Sep). They again ignored the Sharia rule that a Solar Eclipse marks the end of a month. They started Dhul Hijjah on Tuesday
instead of Monday !!!
It is unfortunate that Saudi Arabian authorities are committing error repeatedly with regard to starting of Hijri months and scholars are silently permitting the violation of Sharia laws. ITHAQULLAAH !!
For the start of Dhul Hijjah, ISNA/FCNA committed Taqleed of Saudis even though they were aware that Saudi's start of Dhul Hijjah was incorrect. They are reminded that they alone will be held responsible for the errors committed knowingly. ITHAQULLAH !!
May Almighty Allaah forgive all our sins and may HE the Almighty provide all of us with a place in Jannathul Firdouse. Aameen
