The Ministry of Science and Technology has just launched a dedicated website and mobile phone app for moon sighting in Pakistan. The site also acts as Pakistan’s first Islamic Calendar site which lists down all the important events in the calendar for next five years.
The website has been designed and developed by the ITcenter, Comsats University Islamabad with collaboration from other important departments of Pakistan.
The Islamic Calendar on the website is approved by the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII).
The site also shows the user moon coordinates and every single important Islamic event displayed with dates. You will be able to see all events such as Eid-ul-Fitr, Eid-ul-Adha, Muharram, Ashura, Eid-Milad-un-Nabi, and more.
Using the site, you can easily view the calendar month wise or day to day basis. There are even visibility maps available for people who look for precise data. These visibility maps are automatically generated and show a global map showing visibility after sunset.
You can also check the ‘New Crescent Moon’ sighting section which has a set visibility criterion starting from A – easily visible to ‘use of optical aid’.
