Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah,

Faqueer Abulfatah Syed Nusrat makes an earnest appeal to all the brothers and sisters in Faith to keep alive the Sunnah of our beloved ProphetSAS and try to sight the New moon (Hilal) of Muharram Al-Haram 1437H on 29th of Zul Hijjah 1436 H which happens to be on Tuesday, the 13th of October 2015 in North America. Numerous traditions (Ahadith) promise immense Devine reward for those who try to keep a Sunnah of the ProphetSAS alive.

Please remember what our Imam, the Promised MahdiPBUH taught us. He said that our religion is the Book of God and following Muhammad, the Messenger of God (Allah bless him and give him peace). 

Totally depending upon declarations based on astronomical calculations of the "experts" we cannot do away with the Sunnah of the ProphetSAS viz. based on both the word and the deed of the ProphetSAS. Astronomical calculations can only help us in determining the possible date and time of visibility of NewMoon. However, sighting the New Moon is a requirement of Shariah. Moreover, it is a Sunnah of the ProphetPBUH. Hence, it is a matter of Sawab (divine reward). 

Our beloved ProphetSAS had commanded us to sight the moon and start fasting and also to sight the moon and break fasting. Some traditions in this matter even ask us not to start fasting without sighting the moon and not to stop fasting without sighting the moon. Moreover, the ProphetSAS used to sight the New Moon himself and used to pray to God and thank Him, if it was seen.

This humble Faqueer, assures you all that if at least ten percent of the Muslims make an effort to sight the New Moon on the 29th of the Lunar Month, there would be no dispute anywhere in the world about the new month. So let us follow the Sunnah and be rewarded by our Lord, the Merciful, and the Munificent.

May God keep us on the right way.
