Moon sSighting

Dear Children

Assalam un Alaikum

I hope you had a nice and fruitful Ramadan and you managed to take advantage of all the blessings of this holy month. It is almost the end of Ramadan and although we are sad that is finishing, we should be happy and hopeful that God has accepted our prayers and worship and that He has destined for us the best that He knows is good for us.

Children, like other months in Islamic calendar, the beginning and the end of the month of Ramadan can only be known by sighting the new moon in the sky. Now in some countries this can be done easily but in some other countries such as the UK it is not always possible. Muslims make a special effort to find out for themselves if the moon of the new month can be seen and the end of Ramadan is announced.

As you know, Anbar, the young girl in our story, had decided to start fasting for the first time. There are now only a few nights left to the end of Ramadan. Anbar’s father, who is a member of the moon sighting committee of the mosque, is trying to see if he can sight the new moon in the sky with the aid of a telescope.

Ghazaleh, our illustrator has captured this event so as to explain how we find out if the month is finished or not. But she has also left some differences in each image for you to have fun in finding them.

Without looking at the answers in the last image, try to find five differences Ghazaleh has made between these two illustrations.
