Not Seen: MCW member Mr HiMY SYeD from Toronto, Ontario reported:
I began Ramadan 2016 with a negative moonsighting from St. John’s Newfoundland, and having travelled across Canada, visiting 30 Canadian masjids in 30 days as part of my http://30Masjids.ca project, I now conclude with a Negative moonsighting report for Shawwal on July 4:
On July 4, after Maghrib prayers and basic Iftar I attempted Moonsighting.
I walked to Reeson Park on Victoria’s Waterfront to get an unobstructed view of the western horizon. There were low hanging clouds, with an overall clear evening sky.
After searching for about 5 minutes, I confirmed I did not see the new moon.
Alhumdulillah, after praying Maghrib inside Masjid Al-Iman in Victoria, British Columbia, the Imam informed this congregation that since majority of Muslim Countries did not see the new moon, Eid al-Fitr locally on Vancouver Island will be Wednesday July 6 2016.
