assalamu alaikum wa rahmatu Allah

The Saudi Arabian Higher Judicial Council headed by Shaykh Salih Al-Luhaydan has today issued an announcement that, due to the confirmation tonight of the sighting of the crescent of Dhul-Hijjah on Tuesday night, the month of Dhul-Hijjah 1425 began on Tuesday 11 January 2005, and that accordingly the Day of ?Arafah will be on Wednesday 19 January 2005 and Eid Al-Adha will be on Thursday 20 January 2005. This is a correction to the previous announcement which was based on completing the month of Dhul-Qa?dah as 30 days since no witnesses had approached the courts to confirm the crescent sighting prior to tonight.
This information has been summarized from the official Arabic announcement which can be viewed at (Saudi Press Agency site). Details about the witnesses are included in the Council?s statemen
