The Saudi Arabian government has declared Monday, July 19th, 2021, to be Arafat Day, while Tuesday, July 20th, 2021, will be Sallah Day. The 9th and 10th of Dhul-Hijra 1442 AH correspond the two days.
The Moon Sighting Committee announced on Friday, July 9th, 2021, that there was no positive sighting of the crescent, indicating that the 30th of Dhul-Qidah 1442 AH will fall on Saturday, July 10th, 2021.
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.
