The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar, has asked the Muslim Ummah to look for the new moon of Dhul Hijjah 1439AH from Sunday.

The sultan said this in a statement signed by Sambo Junaidu, the Chairman, Advisory Committee on Religious Affairs, Sultanate Council, Sokoto, on Sunday.

“This is to inform the Muslim Ummah that Sunday, Aug. 12, 2018 which is equivalent to the 29th day of Dhul Qadah 1439AH, shall be the day to look for the new moon of Dhul Hijjah 1439AH,” he said.

“Muslims are, therefore, requested to start looking for the new moon and report its sighting to the nearest district or Village Head for onward communication to the Sultan’’.

He prayed for all Muslims for Allah to help them in the discharge of their religious duties.
