Solar Eclipse on Monday, October 3

Solar Eclipse of Monday, October 3 occurs when the moon is "New Moon" or "Invisible Moon". At that moment moon comes in front of the sun as seen from earth. This moon is totally invisible, because the moon does not have any light. This moon is not "hilal" and cannot be seen from any where in the world. It is also scientific fact that when sun eclipse occurs, at that moment there are two days in the world; e.g. on Monday, Oct 3 eclipse occurs at 10:28 GMT, which means 1:28pm Saudi Time, or 11:28pm at 165 Longitude on Sunday, October 2. This eclipse can be seen from Middle East, Europe and Africa on October 3, Monday.

Official Decision and Announcement of the High Judiciary Council of Saudi Arabia...

Just a short time ago, Fatwa-Online was informed of the official decision and announcement of the High Judiciary Council of Saudi Arabia that since the moon of Ramadhaan was sighted this evening, here in Saudi Arabia, we have completed twenty nine (29) days of Sha'baan (1426 A.H.), in accordance with the hadeeth of the Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam):

((Fast when you see the crescent. If it is obscured to you, then complete thirty days of Sha'baan. And break your fast when you see the crescent. If it is obscured to you then fast thirty days)), [transmitted by al-Bukhaaree and Muslim].

Subsequently, we shall be starting our Taraaweeh prayers tonight (Monday 3 October 2005) after the 'Ishaa. prayer, in preparation for the first fast of Ramadhaan on Tuesday 4 October 2005, inshaa.-Allaah

asslamu alaikum

do a google search for Solar Eclipse on Monday, October 3. A solar eclipse occured on monday, how this effects moonsighting i cant tell you exactly.

What i can tell you is that it was imposible anyone in the world saw it on monday becouse the new moon was on monday we are not looking for the new moon but the Hilal.

Mr. Saleh Al Saab, member of the 6 Official Saudi Hilaal Sighting Committee confirms that the Hilaal was not seen by them in Saudi on Monday. Contact him and he will explain all the errors and how he has been trying to correct the error for the last 20 years in vain. However Majlis Al Qadah Alala ignored their testimony and follow the error to begin fast on Tuesday


Saudi Astronomer Confirms That Wednesday 05 October is The First Day of Ramadan

Prediction of the Start of the Holy Month of Ramadhan 1426 H

The Calculations are done for the Longitude and Latitude of Makkah AlMukarramah Area and the times are for Local Time of Saudi Arabia

Makkah Al-Mukarramah: Latitude = 21:39 N , Longitude = 39:46 E

Calculations show that the birth of the new moon occurs about 4.75 hours before the sunset on 3 October 2005 in Makkah AlMukkaramah area and the moon sets about three minutes after the Sunset. Therefore and according to calculations, the last day of month of Shaaban 1426 H will be on Monday 3 October 2005 where the moon sets after the sun as indicated in the table. Then, astronomically (solely based on calculations), the first day of Ramadhan 1426 H will be on Tuesday 4 October 2005. For crescent sighting, the Moon will be about 0.4 degree above the horizon and, horizontally, about one degree to the left (south) of the sun on Monday at the sunset moment and its luminosity is about five ten thousands (0.05 %) of the full moon which is much below the ability and sensitivity of normal human eyes detection, therefore it is not possible to sight that extremely faint crescent by a human. But it is possible to sight the crescent on the Tuesday evening since the age of the Moon will be about 29 hours and it will be about 7.4 degrees above the horizon and, horizontally, about ten degree to the left (south) of the sun at the sunset moment and its luminosity is about 1.5 % of the full moon which is in the range of the ability and sensitivity of normal human eyes. The shape of the crescent moon should look as shown in the figure. Taking all the previous points into account, the possibility is that according to calculation Tuesday 4th will be the first day of Ramadhan and according to actual sighting of the crescent Wednesday 5 October 2005 will be the first day of Ramadhan.

The above prediction is based on calculations and may be used merely for the purpose of a general guidance and one must go with the method of actual sighting of the moon, the method which, our Prophet Mohammad - PBUH - (SallAllhuAlihiWassallam) guided and ordered us to observe and follow, and Allah has the knowledge (wAllahuAllam).
