Dhul Hijjah 1439h

Dhul Qa'adah 29, 1441h as of July 20, 2020

The crescent moon to commence the month of Dhul Hijjah was NOT sighted in Haramain (Makkah and Madina). Further to this, the moon is not sighted anywhere in the eastern corridor of the United States therefore as per HCC policy it has been decided unanimously that we will complete 30 days of Dhul Qa'dah In Sha Allah. The holy month of Dhul Hijjah begins on Wednesday July 22, 2020 and accordingly, the day of Arafah will be on Thursday July 30, 2020 and Eid ul Adha will be celebrated on Friday July 31, 2020.

Welcome to HIJRI Calendar Committee

Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

With the infinite blessings and mercy of Allah Subhanahu wata'la, we are pleased to announce about an unprecedented show of unity and cooperation between the four local Islamic Centers. In a time, when disagreements and refutations thrive and indulge people, any sign and gesture of unity is a time to celebrate.

Muslim Center of Middlesex County (MCMC), Muslim Community of New Jersey (MCNJ), Masjid Al-Wali, and Islamic Center of East Brunswick (ICEB) have agreed on a unified policy for declaring the start of the Islamic (Hijri) months. 

We have formed a committee, ‘Hijri Calendar Committee’ which will be responsible for making these decisions. 

We pray that Allah Subhanhu wata’la put barakah this beautiful effort of unifying Muslims living in the Central Jersey and surrounding areas in the celebration of these blessed occasions and festivals.
