Ummul Qura Calendar Change Petition - Please support us!!

==================================================================

Respected Scholars, Brothers and Sisters in Islam,

Assalamu Alaykum wa-Rahmatullahi wa-Barakatuh.

It is really unfortunate that we are divided once again with the moon sighting news from Riyadh being a day early compared to other nearby countries (such as Oman, South Africa, Morocco etc). Also, if the Hilal is truely seen in Saudi Arabia, after 8-11 hours when the Sun sets in North America, Hilal should be bigger and more clearly visible (if the sky is clear), but we fail to see it, pointing to error in the decision from Riyadh.

This error from Saudi Arabia is also encouraged by the UmmUlQura Calendar which is based on Sunset after Moonset (even by 1 second), which does not guarantee the visibility of Hilal. Muslims in UK have started a petition to update the UmmUlQura Calendar to reflect models for Hilal Visibility. Please sign this petition insha'Allaah at the website link below.

http://www.tinyurl.com/qywqd7f

Please also promote this petition by forwarding it to your friends.

Our petition aims to persuade the Riyadh Authorities insha-Allah to bring their Ummul Qura Calendar in line with internationally recognized data on the science of moon sighting and crescent visibility predictions.

Remember: "Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change their own conditions (by themselves)." [Quran 13: 11]

PS.

If you need more guidance or wish to read our petition in other languages (e.g. Arabic, Urdu), please visit:
