Sistani's office expectations for the new moon of the holy month of Muharram

The office of the Supreme Religious Authority, Sayed Ali al-Sistani, according to the new moon timings booklet that it issued for the year 1444 AH, expected that the crescent of the sacred month of Muharram should be on the evening of Friday (29 Dhu al-Hijjah 1443 AH) corresponding to (July 29, 2022), on the horizon of the holy city of Najaf at sunset at (07:02), with an altitude of 8 degrees and 53 minutes above the horizon, and remain after sunset for 46 minutes, and the percentage of the illuminated section of the moon is 0.77%, in which case it is expected to be able to see the Crescent with the naked eye in case the atmosphere is completely clear.

It is noteworthy that these calculations according to the times of the crescent moon do not represent the opinion of the religious authority, but are merely astronomical expectations, because the beginning of the lunar months depend on the confirmation of the vision of the crescent moon, so we hope that all the faithful will monitor the crescent moons according to the data mentioned in this brochure and inform us of vision if possible.
