If Moon Sighted On April 20, People To Go For Qaza Fasting After Eid: Grand Mufti

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir’s Grand Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam Tuesday said that Shab-e-Qadr will be observed on April 17 while as Eid moon will be sighted on April 20 and in case moon is sighted on April 20, people will have to offer Qaza fasting of a day.

In his statement to the press following a lengthy meeting of Ulema which included prominent figures such as Maulana Rahmatullah Qasmi, Ghulam Rasool Hami, and Prof Muhammad Tayib Kamili, as well as Moulana Aga Syed Al Hassan Mousavi, Ghulam Muhammad Bhat, Moulana Fayaz Ahmed Rizvi, Masroor Abbas Ansari, and others, the Grand Mufti declared: “April 17th will mark the observance of Shab-e-Qadr. On April 20th, the moon sighting will take place, and if the moon is sighted, individuals will be required to observe one day of Qaza fasting after Eid.”

He said any decision regarding Eid will be made public after thorough consultation with Ulema. “MeT department will also be consulted before any announcement,” he said.

It is worth noting that there was a dispute regarding the start of fasting in Kashmir. The Grand Mufti had recommended that people begin fasting from Friday, while the majority of individuals had already started fasting from Thursday.

The Grand Mufti had explained that he had not received any testimony about sighting the Ramadhan crescent on Wednesday evening. Additionally, he called for the release of Mirwaiz Moulvi Umar Farooq, Moulana Abdur Rashid Dawodi, and other Ulema who are currently detained in different prisons.(KNO)
