Dear Brothers and Sisters:
Eid-ul-Fitr announcement will be made on Monday, June 3, 2019, per our policy below. Please check your email or visit your Islamic Center website and Facebook page for announcements and other related details. We strongly urge you to attend the first prayer session to avoid overflow at the second prayer.
The Austin Ramadan and Eid Committee uses the following criteria for the start of Ramadan and Eid-ul-Fitr: We follow the methodology of Wihdat Al-Matali’ with refutation of sightings that are impossible according to the moon’s age at sunset. If a recognized body accepts a sighting from a location that shares the night with us and that sighting is not impossible, we will declare the start of Ramadan and Shawwal. If it is impossible to sight the moon on the 29th of the respective month, the month will be officially declared as 30 days in advance.
PLEASE PAY ZAKAT-UL-FITR ($10 PER PERSON) WELL BEFORE END OF RAMADAN, PREFERABLY BY FRIDAY, MAY 31, 2019.
