Grand Iftar in the Darul-Ifta & The Moon sighting

BARMM, 11 MAY  2021 – The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “He who provides a fasting person something with which to break his fast, will earn the same reward as the one who was observing the fast, without diminishing in any way the reward of the latter.”

Based on this Hadith, – On May 11, 2021, Tuesday afternoon, there was a Grand Iftar conducted by the Darul – Ifta in collaboration and sponsored by Hon. MP SHEIKH SAID Z. SALENDAB. There were a lot of foods, drinks and mineral waters have been prepared, intended for approximately 300pax.

At 5:57 pm everybody has broken his/her fast and fortunately, all of those who attended the said the event has satisfied to the dinner. On the other hand, at 7:00 pm, some of the moon sighters have arrived in the Darul – Ifta’s Office to report the result of moonsighting. At 7:30 pm, all moonsighters have entered in the cubicle of Mufti for reporting, but unfortunately, all moon sighters haven’t seen the new crescent according to their report.

After the report of each team, at exactly 8:00 pm Mufti has pronounced that the Eidul Fit’r will be on Thursday 13th May 2021, based on the abovementioned authentic Hadith ‘‘Fast after you have seen it (the new crescent) and end the Fast (at the end of the Month) when you see it’’ If it is hidden from you, then wait until the thirty days of Sha’baan have passed.” [Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
