Based on astronomical data and charts, as demonstrated above, on Sunday 5th June 2016 it is impossible to sight the new moon with the naked eye or with optical aid in Europe.
Therefore, Majlis-e-Ulama-e-Shia (Europe) announces the first day of the Holy Month of Ramadhan is Tuesday 7th June 2016.
Majlis-e-Ulama-e-Shia (Europe) wishes to extend good wishes and felicitations to all Momineen on the advent of the holy and blessed month of Ramadhan, and we pray that all our worships, prayers and supplications are accepted with the Grace of Allah (s.w.t.) and that He showers His blessings and bounties upon us all, with the intercession of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) and the Ahlul-Bayt (a.s.).
The Momineen may refer to their respective Maraje-e-Izam for further guidance.
