DHUL-HIJJAH MOON SIGHTING

The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), under the leadership of its President-General and Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Alh. Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, wishes to urge the entire Nigerian Muslims to be on the lookout for the Crescent of Dhul-Hijjah immediately after sunset today, August 22, 2017 equivalent to Dhul-Qa’dah 29, 1438AH. Should the Crescent of Dhul-Hijjah be sighted immediately after sunset today being the 29th of Dhul-Qa’dah, His Eminence, the President-General of NSCIA will declare Wednesday, August 23, 2017 as the first day of DHul-Hijjah, 1438AH. If however, then Thursday, August 24, 2017 automatically becomes the first day of Dhul-Hijjah, 1438AH.

In addition to the established and traditional Islamic leaders in each locality, members of the National Moon Sighting Committee (NMSC) who can be contacted for information and clarification are as follows:
