Shawwal 1440H Alert

CHC received news from Maryland by a group of six people reporting sighting the hilal. CHC 'ulama, as they always do, investigated the claim, which is all the more necessary when a reported sighting is from an area where it's a near-impossible sighting.

As part of the corroboration, CHC was informed that the hilal looked like a sparkle similar to a star which then changed into an easily visible crescent. This is not a known trend in hilal phases.

CHC was also informed that the moon was sighted four minutes after sunset. This is also near impossible for such a young moon.

CHC was also informed by local Maryland 'ulama that a number of other groups (over 50 brothers in different locations) from the locality went to prime locations to site the moon, and despite crystal clear skies, did not see anything.

THE FIQH: WHEN THE SKIES ARE CLEAR A SINGULAR POSITIVE REPORT IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO END RAMADAN WHEN IT IS IN OPPOSITION TO ALL NEGATIVE REPORTS (FROM 50+ PLACES THROUGHOUT THE US).

Due to these oddities in the report, coupled with the scientific difficulty to sight the moon in that location, CHC did not accept this report.
