Islamic Crescents Observation for the UK ICOUK@groups.ioThe Crescent Moon (Hilal) Observation experiences in the UK over the past few years have suggested that it is possible to sight the Hilal on the UK horizon for most months of the year (to the keen observers). However, adverse weather conditions can reduce the chances of a successful sighting. Therefore, it is important to have a large group of people making the attempt from different parts of the country so that if most of the country is cloudy, at least some parts may make a successful sighting, InshaAllah.
In order to co-ordinate the above Hilal observation attempts in the UK on a regular basis as well as to send out reminders, observation reports and discuss the relevant issues (e.g. the science and/or fiqh of moon sighting) this mailing list (ICOUK) has been set up.
