Saturday 30 August 2008: As of 19:37 hours Saudi time, we are informed that the High Judiciary Council of Saudi Arabia are still meeting and have not yet issued any statement to the King’s Court to inform them of the sighting of the moon of Ramadhaan. In this regard, and until we are advised otherwise, tomorrow – Sunday 31 August 2008 – will be the 30th day of Sha’baan 1429AH, in shaa.-Allaah.
As soon as we receive any further information we shall inform you, in shaa.-Allaah.
