    Ramadhaan 1439 – High Judiciary Council of Saudi Arabia

    15th May 2018

    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 not sighted this evening, here in Saudi Arabia, we shall be
    completing thirty (30) days of Sha’baan (1439 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 tomorrow (Wednesday 16 May, 2018) after the ‘Ishaa. prayer, in preparation for the
    first fast of Ramadhaan on Thursday 17 May, 2018, in shaa.-Allaah.
