21 July 2012 Saturday was the first day of the Holy month of Ramadhan in India. The moonsighting was not common, therefore the Hilal committees in different parts of the country concluded late night that the moonsighting was confirmed in some parts of the country like Mysore, Bangalore, Bihar etc.
Darul Uloom Deoband announced the beginning of Ramadan around 11 pm after confirmation from different sources. Likewise, The Amarat Shariah Patna, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind Delhi also announced that moonsigting was confirmed and thus 21 July 2012 Saturday will be the first day of Ramadhan.
May Allah grant us taufiq to spend the Ramadan days and nights the way He pleases! May Allah accept our aamaal and make them sources of our success and deliverance! Amen!
