Turkey Congress On Hijri Calender Unity
President of Religious Affairs Of Turkey
Istanbul Conference, May 30, 2016

It is contrary to the spirit and traditions of a religion based on Tawheed (oneness of the Almighty) that Islamic countries and in fact even countries that are located in the same geographical area start fasting on different days and thus observe the Eid on different days. The Office of the President of Religious Affairs (Diyanet) of Turkey held worldwide conference in Istanbul on February 18, 2016. Scholars and astronomers from all Muslim countries participated in discussion and voting.

In that conference, Dr. Yusuf Al-Qaradawi Head of European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFR) Dublin, Ireland, proposed a Global Hijri Calendar and was approved by voting by the scholars from many Muslim countries. It is now expected that the Islamic world can celebrate their Ramadan and Eidain on the same day, adopting a single Hijri calendar worldwide.

His criteria are that somewhere on the globe, at local sunset, the elongation should be at least 8 degrees and moon should be at least 5 degrees above horizon. If this condition is met the month starts the next day, otherwise the month starts on the day following next. The presence of moon above horizon is the basis.

Dr. Yusuf Al-Qaradawi died on September 26, 2022 (Monday). inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji'oon. May Allah give him a high place in Jannatul-Firdous.
