New moon sighting to determine Aidiladha date on June 18

The Malaysian government has introduced that the sighting of the brand new moon of Zulhijjah, which will decide the date for Aidiladha, is about to happen on June 18. The date will be announced over radio and television on the same night, following the sighting. The Conference of Rulers has agreed to set the date for Aidiladha based mostly on the ‘rukyah’ (sighting of the model new moon) and ‘hisab’ (mathematical and astronomical calculation) methods.
Crazy will be carried out at 20 places across the nation, including Pontian Kecil in Johor, Falak Al-Khawarizmi Complex Kampung Balik Batu in Tanjung Bidara, Melaka, Baitul Hilal Complex in Telok Kemang, Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan, and Bukit Melawati in Kuala Selangor. Other places include Bukit Jugra in Banting, Kuala Langat and Sabak Bernam Observatory in Selangor, Pantai Pasir Panjang in Mukim Pengkalan Baru, Manjong, Perak, and Falak Sheikh Tahir centre in Pantai Aceh, Penang.
Additionally, the sighting will take place at Kampung Pulau Sayak in Kuala Muda, Pemandangan Indah in Pulau Langkawi, and Alor Setar Tower in Kedah. In Terengganu, the places embrace Bukit Besar in Kuala Terengganu, Bukit Geliga in Kemaman, Pulau Perhentian in Besut, and KUSZA observatory in Mukim Merang, Setiu. The sighting will also be performed at Bukit Peraksi in Pasir Puteh, Bukit Kampung Tembeling in Mukim Manjur, Olak Jeram District in Kuala Krai, and SEDC Tower in Kota Baharu, Kelantan..
