Any Brother who is prepared to serve on a Hilaal Committee  in his city, town or suburb, should ​ ​please provide   his name and contact details.  Communicate your details (name, e-mail, fax and ​ ​phone number/s) to:

To be a  member of our Hilaal Committee, the following two conditions are imperative:

(2) Should not shave, cut or trim his beard if it has not grown beyond the mandatory Shar'i ​ ​requirement of one fist length.

​(3) Each committee in each area should comprise of atleast 3 members​.



(1) All members of all Hilaal Committees MUST incumbently search for the Hilaal at sunset on the 29 ​ ​th​ ​ of every Islamic month.

(2) Each Hilaal Committee MUST incumbently inform the Ameer of  The National Hilaal Committee of MUSA of the result of  its search for the Hilaal. Both sightings and nonsightings MUST​ ​be ​ ​conveyed​ ​to ​ ​the​ ​Ameer ​ ​immediately​ ​after ​ ​the​ ​search ​ ​has​ ​ended.

(3) Each Hilaal Committee should transmit the report of its search telephonically to the ​ ​following numbers as soon as  possible after concluding  the search:

The above is the simple structure and modus operandi of The National Hilaal Committee of ​ ​M.U.S.A. Keeping track of the Islamic Months is a Waajib obligation on the Muslim community.

As such, all those who assist in the search for the Hilaal will, Insha-Allah, be recompensed with ​ ​Thawaab by Allah Ta'ala.

On the evening of the search for the Hilaal, proceed to your  vantage point of search immediately ​ ​after the two Sunnat raka'ts of Maghrib, or  take your Musalla and perform Maghrib Salaat at your vantage point. During the course of the 29 ​ ​th​ ​ day, each Hilaal Committee shall be reminded ​ ​to search for the Hilaal, Insha-Allah.
