However, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar, has advised Nigerian Muslims to keep an eye out for the new Dhul-Hijra crescent on Saturday, July 10th, 2021.

 

The new instructions were issued by Sultan, the head of the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday evening.

 

“This is to inform the Muslim Ummah that Saturday, July 10th, which is comparable to the 29th of Dhul Qadah 1442AH, shall be the day to look out for the new moon of Dhul Hijja 1442AH,” according to part of the announcement.

Sultan asked Nigerian Muslims to contact their local officials if they see the crescent in their neighborhood.

 

Dhul-Hijra is the Islamic calendar’s final month. In Islam, it is a holy month during which Muslims attend Hajj (pilgrimage) and the Festival of the Sacrifice.

    I have been surfing online more than three hours as of late, yet I never
    discovered any interesting article like yours. It is pretty
    price enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and
    bloggers made just right content as you did, the internet will
    likely be much more helpful than ever before.
