Ramadan Announcement

27 Apr 2018

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabaraktuh


Dear Brothers and Sisters

Based on global moon sighting criterion, the blessed month of Ramadan of the year 1439 AH is expected to begin on Wednesday May 16, 2018. However, Imam Syamsul Bahri and ISD Management have decided that the beginning and end of Ramadan will be determined by the advice of the Grand Mufti of Australia, Imam Abdel Aziem Al-Afifi.

Imam Syamsul Bahri and ISD Management will be coordinating with the Grand Mufti as well as the Australian National Imam Council (ANIC) and will declare the start and end of Ramadan. Nevertheless, we will go out for sighting the moon and if the moon is sighted before the Grand Mufti’s declaration, Imam and Management will inform him and ANIC about this. Community members who have any knowledge or experience in this area are invited to join the team that will go out to sight the moon by contacting the management.

So let us respect the decisions of Grand Mufti, Imam and ISD Management. Let us focus our attention on preparing for the arrival of this blessed month and plan on getting maximum benefit from the days of fasting and nights of prayers.  Please join us in our daily Iftar at the masjid and Taraweeh prayers. 

The masjid expenses will be greatly increased during this period, so we request you to increase your donation in preparation for this blessed month.

To verify the start of Ramadan, please stay tuned to ISD mailing list, check our website at www.isod.org.au, follow us on Facebook, or call the Masjid after 8:00pm on Wednesday May 16, 2018 at 045800 9429. 

Jazakumullahu Khairan for your cooperation
