Dear Brothers and Sisters-in-Islam,
Assalaam Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatahu,
On behalf of the Hilal Committee, I am pleased to confirm that the new moon for Shawaal has been sighted today. Eid-ul-Fitr will therefore be celebrated all over New Zealand, tomorrow, 9 August 2013.
We take this opportunity to extend our warmest and heartiest Eid Mubarak to all members of our community and congratulate them for having strived to fulfil this honourable obligation of fasting and praying.
Eid Mubarak! Khullu Aam Wa Anthum Bikhair!
May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala accept our fasting and prayers and all the good deeds in this most blessed month of Ramadhan, (A'meen).
Jazakallaho Khair and Wasalaam
