In the Islamic calendar, the weekday commences at sunset. However, as the time of sunset varies with geographical location, the Hijri date on this website is updated at midnight IST.
Hijri date provided here is based on sighting of the new lunar
crescent after sunset of the last day of the preceding Islamic month, as announced by the Central Moonsighting Committee, Juma
Masjid of Bombay Trust.
