No chance of Zilhaj moon sighting on July 10: Director Space Sciences KU

The Central Ruet e Hilal committee is all set to meet on July 10 (i.e. 29th of Ziquad) for Zilhaj moon-sighting in Karachi, as Eid al-Adha is expected to fall on either July 20th or 21st, reported 24NewsHD TV Channel.

The committee comprising officials from the Met department, Suparco, Navy and religious affairs ministry will meet on Saturday with Maulana Abdul Khabeer Azad as its chair. The sessions of zonal ruet-e-hilal committees will take place in their respective regions will take place on the same day.

Director Space Sciences at Karachi University Professor Javaid Iqbal said that there is no chance of sighting the new moon of Zilhaj 1442 AH on the evening of July 10, just last month.

He said on July 10 the age of the new moon would be just 13 hours, which is not possible to be seen by the naked eye.

He said the chance of sighting a new moon is even lesser in Peshawar than in Karachi and the eid moon will be visible enough on July 11 and the Eidul Adha will be observed on July 21.
