Assalamualaikum Wr Wb.
According to astronomical calculations, the crescent for the month of Zulhijjah this evening did not meet the criteria agreed upon by member countries of MABIMS (Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore). As such tomorrow is the last day of the Islamic calendar month of Zulkaedah.
Therefore, I am pleased to announce that the first day of the month of Zulhijjah 1439H falls the day after tomorrow, Monday, 13 August 2018.
This means Eiduladha or Hari Raya Haji, which is on the tenth day of Zulhijjah falls on Wednesday, 22 August 2018.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish every Muslim in Singapore a blessed Zulhijjah and a meaningful Hari Raya Haji celebration. May God bestow upon us the fortitude to perform good deeds with humility and strengthen our faith.
