Update:10:46 PM Eastern time: There are no authenticated reports yet. The National Ulema & Astronomers Conference Call will reconvene at 11:15PM Eastern time after California sunset Insha'Allaah.
Today, Sunday is 29th of Sh'aban and we request Muslims in North America to observe the Hilal for the blessed month of Ramadan and report.
As per the lunar calculation and its visibility curve that can be seen here http://www.crescentmoonwatch.org/nextnewmoon.htm , Hilal is unlikely to be seen in North America. Therefore, if we don't receive authentic and verifiable Hilal sighting reports tonight then Ramadan will begin Tuesday, Sept.  2nd Insha’Allaah.

However we encourage all to try to sight the Hilal on the evening of Sunday, August 31 as well and send any reports to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it giving their name(s), location, contact telephone(s), age, religion, as well as contacts of their local Masjid and Imam who can vouch for their integrity Insha’Allaah. The decision of the Hilal Sighting Committee of North America will be announced on this website on Sunday, Augst 31 evening after Sunset in California Insha’Allaah.

For details on this issue please see the English language video http://baytuliman.org/pdf/Moon_Sighting_&_Islamic_Dates_Solution.wmv and read the paper at www.hilalsighting.org/papers/salman.pdf website. You can play the video in your Masjid and distribute the paper, translating if needed Insha’Allaah.

For Arabic language video, on Wednesday, January 2, 2008 there was an excellent interview on AlJazeera TV “Belaa Hudood” program about issues with the Saudi announced Hejiri dates including last year’s erroneous Dhul-Hijja date. The program featured Br. Mohammad Odeh of the Islamic Crescents' Observation Project (ICOP), Abu-Dhabi, UAE, and many other scholars from several countries like Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, Qatar and Algeria. This video, which refers to http://www.hilalsighting.org the website of Hilal Sighting Committee of North America can be seen at http://www.hilalsighting.org/content/view/43 and http://youtube.com/watch?v=lx0rLtKPzbc

Please note that on August 31 evening it is IMPOSSIBLE to sight the Hilal in Saudi Arabia. May Allaah SWT guide all Ummah to Haq with Khayr. Aameen.
