Dhu al-Hijjah begins (Eid al-Adha to be on Sun., Oct. 5)
Crescentwatch has confirmed that the new crescent moon (hilal) of Dhul-Hijjah has been sighted on Thursday evening (Sept. 25th) at numerous locations around the globe including California, Virginia, and throughout the U.S.. Along with the completion of 30 days of Dhu al-Qidah, this marks the beginning of the sacred month of Dhu al-Hijjah, with its first day on Friday, Sept. 26th.

We will thus observe the blessed day of Eid al-Adha (the 10th of Dhu al-Hijjah) on Sunday, October 5th, insha'Allah.
The first ten days of Dhu al-Hijjah are considered to be among the holiest days of the entire year. May Allah make this blessed month a source of benefit, enrichment, and closeness to Allah, Most High.

Crescentwatch did not receive any confirmed reports of the new crescent moon (hilal) being sighted anywhere in the world via naked-eye on the evening of Wednesday, September 25th. We received numerous negative reports from experienced moon-sighters with clear skies around the world including South Africa and throughout North America.

We will thus complete the 30 days of Dhu al-Qidah and begin the sacred month of Dhu al-Hijjah Thursday evening with its first day on Friday, September 26th. We will celebrate the blessed day of Eid al-Adha (the 10th of Dhu al-Hijjah) on Sunday, October 5th, insha'Allah.

Crescentwatch.org adheres to the traditional principal that Islamic lunar months begin and end based on the confirmed, verifiable, naked-eye sighting of the new crescent moon.

Is Eid Connected with Hajj

Moon Sighting Report for Dhul Hijjah 1435 AH
The Wifaqul Ulama UK have decided that the month of Dhul Qidah 1435 AH will complete 30-days and the month of Dhul Hijjah 1435 AH will start from Friday 26th September 2014, which means Eid-ul Adha will be on Sunday 5th October 2014, Insha-Allah.

Note: None of the official Saudi Hilal Committee Members were able to sight the hilal on Wednesday 24th September 2014, but the Supreme Court has accepted the claims of a few early-sighters from near Riyadh (Shaqra/Sudair), even though the moon was not expected to be sighted anywhere in Saudi Arabia or in the whole world on that evening.

Update: We have received a fax from Morocco Awqaf Ministry that their month of Dhul Hijjah 1435 AH will also start from Friday 26th September 2014, which means their Eid-ul Adha will also be on Sunday 5th October 2014, Insha-Allah

Beginning from the Fajr of the 9th Zulhijjah up to the 'Asr prayer of the 13th, it is obligatory on each Muslim to recite the Takbir of Tashriq after every fard prayer in the following words.

Eid al-Adha is on the 10th day of D. Hijja by the sighted moon
The answer is very clear. The Muslims must follow the Quran, the Sunnah, and the consensus of the Ummah for the last 1400 years. The Qur’an specifies the crescent moons as determining the Islamic dates, and the Hajj. Saudi authorities fix the Islamic and Hajj dates by other than 'Ahilla', and therefore the Muslims must not follow them. We checked the books of Fiqh, and did not find any support for the assertion that Eidul Adha should be made on the basis of Hajj decision. The Hadith of the Prophet - peace be upon him - that al-Hajj yauma yahujju al-nas is for those who make Hajj. Of course those who go to Hajj must go to 'Arafah according to the decision of the authorities there, even if that is contrary to the astronomical data or someone's own moon sighting. But people in far away lands do not make Hajj in their locations. They have to make Eid prayer and make Qurbani. They cannot have Eid on 9th of Dhul Hijjah, if the moon was not sighted in their location and sighted in Arabia one day before. They cannot have Udhhiyaha a day earlier.Every Year the issue of The begining of Ramadhan and the start of Eid Ul fitar and the start of Dhul Hijjah and Eid Al Adha becomes a Talking point in the Muslim community.
