There were no reliable moon sighting reports from the UK or from abroad. Therefore, the Wifaqul Ulama have declared that the holy month of Ramadhan 1432 AH will complete 30 days and Eid ul-Fitr will be on Wednesday 31st August 2011, Insha-Allah”.
“Eid al-Fitr to be on Weds. Aug. 31
Crescentwatch received numerous negative sighting reports of reliable and experienced moonsighters who went out to sight the new moon of Shawwal Monday night, despite very favorable sighting conditions even in key areas in South America including Chile. We did examine the details of one positive report from near Santiago, Chile, and while it may have been a legitimate sighting, without any other positive sightings anywhere, we do not find that such a single, solitary report provides the certainty required for us to declare the momentous occasion of Eid.
The Prophet, peace be upon him said, “Leave what you deem doubtful for that which you know to be certain.”
We will happily enjoy another blessed day of Ramadan, go to sight the moon tomorrow night, and celebrate Eid al-Fitr on Wednesday, Aug. 31st, insha’Allah.
We nonethless encourage Muslims to celebrate Eid with their local community, following the dates and moon sighting methodology of their qualified leadership. May Allah bless and increase everyone during these sacred days.
Crescentwatch.org adheres to the traditional principal that Islamic lunar months begin and end based on the confirmed, verifiable sighting of the new crescent moon.

“Moongsighting: The Start of Shawwal (Eid)
29 August 2011 19h15
As the crescent marking the start of Shawwal 1432 was not sighted anywhere in South Africa, the holy month of Ramadan 1432 ends on 30 August 2011.
Consequently, Eid-ul-Fitr shall be observed on Wednesday 31 August 2011.
The Jamiatul Ulama South Africa wishes all Muslims the world over, Eid-ul-Fitr Mubarak.
May the Almighty accept our facts and acts of worship of the departing special month of Ramadan.”.
