NOTE: If the New Moon is sighted during the moon-sighting (Niyata) on July 19, 2012, as enjoined by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), the Fasting Month of Ramadhan will start the following day, July 20, 2012. If not sighted, it will be on July 21, 2011. Another moon-sighting activity will be conducted on the 29th day of Ramadhan to determine the end of Ramadhan Fasting and observance of Eid’l Fitr.
Bureua of Muslim Settlements (BMS) in partnership Quezon City Muslim Consultative Council will be hosting a "Pulong-Pulong sa Ramadan with IFTAR" at Al-Farouk Mosque, Lower Hasmin, Payatas A, Brgy Payatas, Quezon City on July 26, 2012 (Thursday) at 5:00pm. Same activity is also scheduled on August 06, 2012 (Monday) at Salam Mosque, where the Secretary will be in attendance.
A donor has gifted our office with P200,000.00 to be distributed (in cash or in kind) to selected Muslim communities/institutions for their iftar and other needs during the month of Ramadan. Because this is amanah which should reach their beneficiaries, the said money will be accounted for and their distribution duly acknowledged by communities and institutions that we will be listing as they receive the donation. We shall then inform the donor of the distribution of the donation. The NCMF remains committed to serving its Muslim constituents no matter how limited its resources are. In the future, we shall be looking for ways to involve more private sector assistance to fill the huge gap between what the office has to do and the budget that it has. It goes without saying that we should also maintain the trust and confidence of our public and private partners so that our working relationships will continue and prosper in the years to come.
NCMF, in service of the Muslim Filipinos.
The Moonsighting Committees of the NCMF headed by Commissioner Ustadz Esmael W. Ebrahim have reported that no moon was sighted tonight. This is corroborated by the reports from the Muftis and the Darul Ifta, as well as communications from the Muftis in Malaysia and Indonesia. Hence, fasting starts on Saturday, July 21, 2012.
NCMF has moved the deadline for Hajj registration and payment of mutawif from July 15, 2012 (Sunday) to July 16 (Monday).
