New Moon Sighting Portal Launched

Good News!

A new moon sighting portal has been launched.

Check it out:

From their about us page:

 We firmly believe that physically sighting the crescent moon as the basis for beginning the lunar month is established by the Qur’an, the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and grant him peace), and has been the position of the overwhelming majority of Islamic scholarship to this day. Hilalbase has therefore been established to provide a much needed resource on authentic moon sighting information for various Muslim communities.

I’m currently serving on the Hilalbase team. We have several top ulama on our board and an increasing number of masjids are registering on Hilalbase every day. Please remember us in your dua’s.

Whether you need to find a masjid in your area which follows the traditional moon sighting method or scientific data on moon sightability (for e.g. the moon visibility curve for Eid ul-Fitr this year – 1st of Shawwal 1427), is the place to go! Hilalbase will also provide the Islamic Hijri date in North America.
