Sunnah 28: When sighting the crescent moon

May 17, 2010

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

When the Prophet (pbuh) would spot the crescent moon he would say:

Allahu Akbar. Allahumma ahilahu alayna bil-amni wal eman, was-salaamati wal-islaam. Rabby wa Rabbuka Allah

“God is the greatest. O Allah, let the crescent loom above us in safety, faith, peace, and Islam, and in agreement with all that You love and pleases You. [Then say to the moon:] Our Lord and your Lord is Allah.” [Tirmidhi]

Today is the 3rd day of the Islamic month Jumaadi Al-Aakhir, & the moon is still in its crescent phase. Look out for it and revive this forgotten sunnah!
