ANNOUNCEMENT BY MUFTI OF SINGAPORE ON THE BEGINNING OF ZULHIJJAH FOR MUSLIMS IN SINGAPORE
According to astronomical calculations agreed upon by member countries of The Informal Meeting of the Religious Affairs Ministers of Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore (MABIMS), the crescent for the month of Zulhijjah was above the horizon this evening for about 19 minutes after sunset.
I am therefore pleased to announce that the first day of the month of Zulhijjah 1440H is on Friday, 2 August 2019.
Subsequently, Aidiladha or Hari Raya Haji, which is on the 10th day of Zulhijjah will be on Sunday, 11 August 2019.
I take this opportunity to wish Muslims in Singapore a blessed Zulhijjah and a joyous Hari Raya Haji celebration. May Allah strengthen our faith and bestow upon us the resilience in performing good deeds.
DR MOHAMED FATRIS BAKARAM
MUFTI, REPUBLIC OF SINGAPORE
