O community of humans, would the moon’s disk be less on the night of middle of the month as you see it now in this night of yours, don’t you guard against evil?
In the name of Allah the One, the Supreme, prayer of forgiveness and peace be upon Mohammad messenger of Allah and his virtuous family, and the entire supporters of Allah in every era till the last day..
O community of humans, have you ever seen the moon less on the night of middle of the month as you see it in front of your eyes in this night of your the night of the middle according to your fasting, or you do not see that the moon became incomplete in front of your eyes? Surely this means that the month of Ramadan has passed the night of half of the month.
Perhaps one of the observers to the crescents for the month of Ramadan would like to interrupt me then say: “But we monitored the crescent of Ramadan on the night of Sunday yet we did not see it in the entire Arab and Islamic region and for that we fasted on Monday”. Then we reply to him with Truth and say: That’s because the sun overtook the moon the major overtaking at the first of month of Ramadan for this year of yours 1432 while you are turning away in heedlessness until the night precede the daylight so the sun would rise from its setting (place), don’t you guard against evil? And whoever denied that the sun overtook the moon then let him now look at the moon’s disk in this night of yours, so if you see it less and no longer complete despite it is according to your calculation that this night is the night of the middle of the month! So how can be incomplete unless the moon bypassed the night half of the month? And as well you will see it set with the sunrise of the sunrise, and the Truth came under light to whom desires the Truth, verily judgement is Allah’s the Best Decider.
And peace be upon the messengers, and praise be to Allah Lord of the worlds..
The Imam Mahdi Nasser Mohammad Al-Yemeni.
