Moon Sighting in WA (Statement from DAWA) Print E-mail
Written by DAWA Centre   
Sunday, 24 September 2006
Dear respected
We have decided the start of the month of Ramadhan (Sunday 24th of September 2006) based on


1- The obvious visibility of the moon in WA even though we in Perth were not able to sight it due to the cloudy sky, the moon was to be on the horizon after the sun-set for about 46 munites which is enough time to sight it.

2- I believe those who have decided that the moon couldn't be sighted, they based their decision on Perth only not WA , in other word we haven't appointed delagations to other towns in WA.Therefore is not right to say that the moon COULDN"T be seen in WA.

3- Leaving 2 days of gap of time between us and the other Muslim countries in the middle east is a huge gap, it cannot be acceptable except in extreme cases which is not our case now.

I hope I have answered your question.

Wa Salaam
