The Crescent Committee of Canada welcomes the blessed month of Ramadan. We have received some reports of sightings in the east. We just received confirmation of a sighting by a group of moon watchers in Northern Chile, including Imtiaz Ahmad, Siddeeq Hazrat, Babar Awaan, Farhan, Abdul Hameed Khan and Mufti Fadhlullah.
Astronomical scientific data also suggests the visibility in the region. Therefore the Crescent Committee of Canada declares:
1st tarawih tonight (5th May, 2019) and 1st fasting day tomorrow (6th May, 2019) .
Please also refer to our official joint statement with Hilal Council of Canada.
Please see moon visibility maps below: (green indicates new crescent is easily seen)
