Sultan Urges Muslims To Look Out For New Moon To End Ramadan


The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) has urged Muslim across the country to look out for the new Islamic moon of Shawwal from Friday, May 22. This was contained in a statement by its Deputy Secretary General, Prof. Salisu Shehu, on Monday in Abuja.

The Muslims umbrella body felicitated with Nigerian Muslims for observing the Ramadan of 1441 AH and prayed to almighty Allah to avail them the opportunity to p0witness another Ramadan in good health.

“Following the advice by the National Moon Sighting Committee (NMSC) that Friday May 22, 2020 which is equivalent to 29th Ramadan, 1441 AH is the first day to look for the Crescent of Shawwal, 1441 AH.

“However, on that day, the moon will set few minutes before the sun, which makes the sighting of the crescent practically impossible.

“Nonetheless, the president-general of NSCIA in compliance with the Sunnah of the Prophet (SAW) enjoins the Nigerian Muslims to search for the crescent of Shawwal 1441 AH, immediately after sunset on Friday May 22, which is equivalent to 29th Ramadan, 1441 AH,” he said.

He enjoined Muslim faithful across the country to be on the lookout for possible announcement by NSCIA President General, Alh. Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, on the termination of the 2020 Ramadan fast.

While reminding the Ummah of the necessity of paying Zakatul-Fitri with the intention of lifting the hearts of the indigent members of the community, the Council urges all to ensure its delivery to the appropriate recipients (i.e. the poor) and guard against its diversion by any agent or intermediary.

The Sultan said in addition to established and traditional Islamic leaders in each locality, members of the National Moon Sighting Committee who can be contacted to report credible positive sighting of the Shawwal crescent are as follows:
