Dear Brother in Islam,
Assalamu alaikum Warahmathullahi Wabarakathuhu,
Sub: Islamic calendar regarding
I understand that there are two versions for the Islamic calendar for the year 1423H in Saudi Arabia. It is wrong to have two versions for the Islamic calendar. It will create confusion.
The dates of the Islamic calendar must tally with the Manazil of the Moon. (2:189)
Please furnish me the first days of the Islamic months for 1423H so that we could print the Islamic calendars here also. This will avoid the confusion in the important Days of Islam.
Please accept my sincerest greetings and respect.
Advisor to the Hijra Committee of India
