The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III on Tuesday urged Muslims to start looking for the new moon of Muharram 1439AH.

The Sultan made this known in a statement signed by the Chairman, Advisory Committee on Religious Affairs, Sultanate Council, Sokoto, Prof. Sambo Junaidu.

He said “This is to inform the Muslim Ummah that Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017, which is equivalent to 29 days of Zulhajji 1438AH shall be the day to look for the new moon of Muharram 1439AH.

“Muslims are, therefore, requested to start looking for the new moon of Muharram 1439AH on Wednesday and report its sighting to the nearest district or village head for onward communication to the Sultan.”

The Sultan then prayed for peace and unity in the country and urged Muslims to fervently pray for sustainable development and growth.
