Declaration of the sighting of the crescent moon of Shawwal 1429 Hijri
Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallah, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahil hamd
Alhamdulillah and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam), and peace be upon his family, his companions, those who gave their loyalty to him, and those who followed him, tracing his steps and establishing the Islamic ‘Aqeeda as the foundation for their thought, and the Ahkam Al-Shar'iyyah as the measure for judgment in their actions and the source of their laws.
It was narrated by Al-Bukhari in his Sahih on the authority of Muhammed Bin Ziyad, who said, "I heard Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, say: ‘The Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said', or he said, ‘Abu Al-Qasim (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) said: Fast when you see it, and break your fast when you see it, and if you cannot see it then complete 30 days of Sha'ban.'"
After seeking the Hilal of the month of Shawwal on this Monday night, a legal (Shar'ee) sighting of the moon has been confirmed in some Muslim lands. Therefore, tomorrow, Tuesday is the first day of Eid al-Fitr.
On this occasion, the Ameer of Hizb ut-Tahrir , the Alim ‘Ataa Bin Khaleel Abu Al-Rashta, may Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) protect him, asks Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) to bless this Ummah and those who uphold Allah's message. Allahu Akbar! May Allah protect this Ummah and accept our worships this Ramadan and honour this Ummah with the great Khilafah Rashida soon.
Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallah, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahil hamd
The head of the media office of Hizb ut-Tahrir, as well as all those working within it, congratulate all the Muslims on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr and ask Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) to bless the Islamic Ummah with the righteous Khalif, behind whom we fight and protect ourselves.
May Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) accept our and your acts of worship. Wassalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa BarakatahuThe eve of Eid al-Fitr 1429 Hijri corresponding to 29th September 2008
