There have been no reports of Hilal sighting here in Mauritius to-day, Thursday, 11 October 2007. So we are completing 30 days Ramadhan. We will be celebrating EID on Saturday, 13 October 2007.

Dr Abdurrazak Ebrahim (MCW member) from Cape Town, S. Africa, reported: Not Seen, 30 days will be completed
At 7.25 pm local time, the official announcement that Ramadaan will be extended to a 30 day month and Eidul Fitr will be observed on Saturday (13 October 2007) in South Africa was made by the elected Hakim and televised on all local TV stations and relayed via airways per South African radio stations.

A Blessed Eid to all, and especially to Muslim Brothers and sisters, and children, who find themselves in difficult and trying situations and conditions.

We are the first webmagazine dedicated to islamic information in France I just wanted to inform you that, officialy, Eid el fitr will take place here on Saturday, Oct 13th, Inch’Allah This is the decision of the French Conseil of Muslim Affairs

Muhammad Afifi al-Akiti (MCW member) from Oxford, UK, reported: Not Seen
Negative sighting. The two of us attempted to perform the obligatory sighting tonight for the UK on 29 Ramadan or Thursday, 11th of October, after Maghrib prayers–in spite of the fact that the crescent is not expected to be visible locally. The local horizon is partly cloudy. We received reports of negative sightings from Morocco, Indonesia and Malaysia tonight. The authorities in Malaysia and Indonesia have declared that the month of Ramadan is to complete its 30 days. There is no news of positive sightings tonight anywhere East to our longitude, which means that those in the UK should try to complete the month of Ramadan with the Tarawih tonight, and that the first day of ‘Id al-Fitr should fall on Saturday, 13th of October. ‘Id Mubarak!

Selamat Idul Fitri 1428 H. Mohon Maaf lahir batin.
