Islamic Society of Greater Salt Lake will be announcing whether Ramadan starts tomorrow (Saturday) or day after (Sunday) based on moonsighting reports from North America by 10 pm iA. Please check on any of the platforms below for the announcement.

Our opinion is based in Quran and Sunnah and Consensus of Islamic Ummah since 1981 and is not associated with unverified and unscientific acceptance of sighting claims randomly.

The opinion found in the Sources section of the link below was internationally agreed to by some of the most senior international scholars of Islamic countries at an international fiqh meeting and declaration in Mecca 1981. The grand mufti of Saudi Arabia then Sheikh Abdul Aziz Bin Baaz also signed it with other major international Scholars from all schools of thought (countries).

Please visit the link below for our detailed moonsighting criteria and sources i.e.Sh. Ibn Baz, Sh. Hamza Yusuf, Dr. Zakir Naik, Sh. Assim Al Hakeem, etc.

Why Moonsighting?
