The Zainabiya Child Sponsorship Scheme provides a sustainable and long term solution to impoverishment through education, and, 30 years on, it is still the pride of our community. The scheme is actively looking for donors to assist the poorest and most disadvantaged amongst us with their schooling requirements.

The World Federation’s education objective is to empower communities with the ability to become self-sufficient. Education will create a generation of skilled individuals who can then work together to lift their families and societies out of poverty.

First Crescent The Islamic month begins with the visible First Crescent and not with the invisible New Moon. The First Crescent is usually sighted in the western sky just after sunset on the first or second evening after the New Moon phase. The sighting depends upon the altitude of the crescent above the horizon, the time difference between sunset and moonset and the angular distance between the sun and the moon.

Visible Crescent

10

One should not confuse the New Moon with the visible thin crescent. It should be realised that the new crescent following a lunar month of 30 days will be brighter and stay longer in the sky than the crescent following a month of 29 days.

New Moon The New Moon phase is defined to be the moment when the moon is almost directly between the Earth and the Sun. At this moment the moon’s dark surface faces the Earth. The New Moon is completely invisible. The date and time of this invisible New Moon is commonly found in almanacs, newspapers and calendars.

Qamar Dar Akrab According to Ahadeeth we should refrain from reciting the Nikah during Qamar Dar Akrab - when the moon is passing through the phase of Scorpio.
