Home Moonsighting Our Activities

The Moonsighting or Hilaal department sends a group to sight the new moon every Islamic month. This information is conveyed to the Hilaal department of the United Ulama Council of South Africa as well as within the Port Elizabeth/Uitenhage Muslim community. Calendars are made and distributed free to Musjids in PE. Sightings are physical and in the event of no moon being sighted, the department consults with UUCSA and takes their official ruling.
