Announcement of the Sighting Result of the New Moon of Shawwal for the Year 1436 AH and Congratulations for the Blessed Eid ul-Fitr
(Translated)

Allahu Akbar… Allahu Akbar… La Illaha Illa Allah… Allahu Akbar… Allahu Akbar Wa Alhamdulillah

All Praise is due to Allah, peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family, companions, allies, and the one who followed in his path; thus making the Islamic Aqeedah the basis for his thoughts, the Ahkaam Shari’ah (Legislative Rulings) the measure for his actions and source for his rulings.

Ahmad extracted by way of Muhammad bin Ziyad who said: I heard Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) say that the Messenger of Allah (sallalahu alaihi wassallam) or he said Abu Al-Qasim (sallalahu alaihi wassallam) said:

«صُومُوا لِرُؤْيَتِهِ، وَأَفْطِرُوا لِرُؤْيَتِهِ، فَإِنْ غُبِيَ عَلَيْكُمْ فَعُدُّوا ثَلَاثِينَ»

Fast when you see it and stop fasting when you see it, and if it is obscured from you (too cloudy), then count it as thirty (days).”

After investigation of the sighting of the moon of Shawwal on this blessed night, the night of Jum’ah – the eve of Friday, the valid sighting of the new moon has been confirmed and that has occurred in some of the Muslim lands. As such tomorrow, Jum’ah (Friday) is the first day of the month of Shawwal and it is the first day of the Blessed Eid ul-Fitr.

And on this occasion, the Ameer of Hizb ut Tahrir, the eminent scholar Ata Bin Khalil Abu Al-Rashtah, may Allah protect him, warmly congratulates all the people of the honorable Islamic Ummah on the occurrence of the blessed Eid ul-Fitr.

And he asks Allah Almighty that He bestows us with the establishment of the Rightly Guided Khilafah State upon the path of the Prophethood that will implement Allah’s Laws upon the Earth, and carry Islam as a message of guidance and light to the world. It is the state of justice that will liberate the lands and bring justice to the servants of Allah and the State of Jihad with which openings will be unceasing. So then the people will chant ‘Allahu Akbar’ on their Eids, and in their conquests ‘Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Laa Ilaaha Illa Allah, Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, Wa Lillahil Hamd...’

And likewise it gives me pleasure to convey the congratulations of the Head of the Central Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir and all those working in it, to the Ameer of Hizb ut Tahrir, the eminent Scholar Ata Bin Khalil Abu Al-Rashtah and all the Muslims on the blessed Eid ul-Fitr. This is the Eid that Allah intended to be a source of joy for those who were fasting, a manifestation of the unity of the Muslims and as a reminder to them that they are one Ummah to the exclusion of all people.

O Muslims in the East and the West of the world,

I ask Allah Exalted Almighty that He has accepted from you and us the prayers, fasting, and Qiyaam and all of our righteous actions. We also ask Him the Almighty that He returns it to you after having honoured you with a just and righteous Khaleefah to be protected by him and fight from behind him… He will lead you with the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Prophet (saw)… and that is not difficult for Allah.

Eid ul-Fitr is a blessing and virtue from Allah Almighty upon the Muslims, and the Eid of Eids will happen upon the realization of Allah Almighty’s promise and the tidings of His Prophet (salallahu alaihi wassalam) of victory and empowerment, and the building of the State that will rule by His Shariah, the State of the Rightly Guided Khilafah State upon the method of the Prophethood.

And for the joy of Eid to be completed, the thrones of the treacherous rulers must be destroyed over their heads.

And for the joy of Eid to be completed, the power and strength of the whole Islamic Ummah must be unified.

And for the joy of Eid to be complete, the Armies must give the Nussrah to Hizb ut Tahrir for the resumption of the Islamic life in all of its areas; politics, economics, social, educational and every area of life. That is by building the magnificent entity of Islam, the Second Rightly Guided Khilafah upon the method of the Prophethood.

And so to the Eid of Eids and to the work for its realization I invite you. So let the culmination of your Eid be in compliance to Allah’s (swt) command by working with the sincere workers to honour, strengthen and empower this Deen so that together we will chant ‘Allahu Akbar’ on the day of the manifest victory, a chant of the victorious, obedient, grateful and those who repent…

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar… Laa Ilaaha Illa Allah
Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar… walillahi Al Hamd
Allahu Akbar Kabeerah wal Hamdulilahi Katheerah wa SubhanAllahi Bukrata wa Aseela
[Glory is for Allah in the morning and evening]
There is no God but Allah…
He kept His Promise…
And made His slave victorious…
And He alone honoured His soldiers and defeated all those gathered against them…
There is no Deity other than Allah…
And we worship none but Him…
Sincere to Him in our Deen and even if the disbelievers despise it.

May your Eid be Mubarak (blessed) and May Allah accept from us and you our acts of worship.
Wassalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu

The night of Jum’ah (the eve of Friday) is the first of Shawwal for the year of 1436 Hijri.
