Ramadhan: Starts on Tuesday, 2 Sept

There was it, the announcement by the Syariah Court judge that the new moon wasn't sighted on Sunday 31 Aug and hence, the fasting month of Ramadhan will start on Tuesday, 2nd Sept.

What is the significance of this? well, Muhammad is keen to fast - he fasted for 17 days last year (he was only 6 yrs and 3 months) and he looks to do a complete 29 or 30 days this year. Well, here's hoping!

Oh, I thot Spore, Malaysia, Indonesia & Brunei will start simultaneously for Ramadhan.

Well, InsyaAllah Muhammad will be able to fulfill his fasting to the best of his ability, in any case, you & Mrs G are sure proud of him!

Shopper Mama - I guess everyone else saw the baby moon except for Brunei hahah.

Tadi I brought Muhammad solat Isya'/Terawih and he was shocked to have to speed up - dia baru sekolah ugama and he reads fatihah pelahan2... and the Imam was like doing 200mph. Well, I hope he'll catch up tomorrow. Thanks for dropping by to this blog Sis, and happy belated birthday to you!
