Ahmad I. Adjie (MCW member) Bandung Indonesia reported: Not Seen
Ahmad I. Adjie MCW member, Bandung, Indonesia and team reports hilal was NOT SEEN, horizon was very cloudy in batu hiu beach, west java, some see-through patches were also laden with thin clouds. This has no effect for dates in Indonesia as yesterday was 29th Muharram and 30 days completed was already decided, so tomorrow 28 Jan 09 is 1st Safar 1430H

Mohammed Mohsin Khan (MCW member) Mumbai, India reported: Not Seen
Today Monday 26 January 2009 / 28 Moharram 1430 in India. Here in Mumbai Sunset was at 06:28 pm IST and Moonset was at 06:35 pm IST. so there was 7 mins difference, Sky was clear but Crescent has not been sighted in India.

Maulana Sultan Alam (MCW member) Karachi Pakistan reported: Not Seen
It was certain that moon would not be visible anywhere in Pakistan because lag was just 5 to 8 minutes and moon's age was hardly 5 hours. In spite of these facts, to increase the trust of common people in the Science of Moon-sighting, I requested many members of the moon-sighting committees of our institute "JAMIA-TUR-RASHEED" and many of my friends all over Pakistan to sight the moon but the moon could not be sighted, as it was certain tonight. About 116 Persons tried to sight the moon at these 20 Places: Karachi (8 Places), Islamabad, Multan, Shorkot Jhang, Faisalabad, Gwadar, Turbat, Tamb, Aasiabad, Dera-Ismaeel-Khan, Pishin, Charsaddah, Battal.

Muhammad Imran Paracha (MCW member) Qatar reported: Not Seen
I tried to sight the moon on January 26 right after sunset, and couldn't see anything. (The age of the moon was just over 6 hours, and as such, it was not possible to sight it, but since it was the 29th of Muharram here, I tried to sight it anyway). Some Gulf newspapers, like Gulf News (UAE) report today, i.e. Jan 27 as Safar 1, while others like Arab News (Saudi Arabia) show Muharram 30 on the web site.

Yusuf M. Lambat (MCW member) Blantyre, Malawi reported: Not Seen
In Malawi also there was no sighting and most parts of the country was cloudy.

Rashid Motala (MCW member) Durban S. Africa reported: Not Seen
There were no sighting reports for the Hilaal this evening [26/01/2009] in S. Africa.

Dr. Abdurrazak Ebrahim (MCW member) Cape Town S. Africa reported: Not Seen
No moon was seen this Monday evening [26/01/2009]. Muharrum will be extended to a 30 day month.

Dr. Muhammad Afifi al-Akiti (MCW member) Oxford UK reported: Not Seen
Negative sighting. The two of us attempted to perform the sighting tonight for the Safar crescent in Oxford on 29 Muharram, Monday 26 January, immediately after Maghrib prayers at the usual site. There were cirrus clouds on the local horizon and the new rescent could not be sighted. By 'Isha time there were no reports of any credible sighting east of our location; rather, we received news of negative sightings in Morocco, South Africa, and Indonesia. Therefore, we should be completing 30 days [istikmal] for Muharram, so that the first day of Safar should fall in the UK on Wednesday 28 January (beginning from Maghrib, 27 January).

Aziz Raje, Ilford, Essex UK reported: Not Seen
We had some clear patches in London soon after Maghrib, a few of us attempted the sighting but there was no sign of the Crescent. We have negative sighting reports from many other places in the UK. In Kent it was clear skies but again there was no positive reports. There are negative reports from South Africa and Morocco as well. Wifaqululama have therefore announced that we will comple 30 days of Muharram and the 1st of Safar 1430 in the United Kingdom will commence from Wednesday 28th January 2008 Insha Allah.

Mohamedraza H.Janmohamed (MCW member) Sanford Florida reported: Not Seen

Muhammad Shafiur Rahman Chowdury from Stockholm, Sweden reported: Not Seen
As Sweden is situated in the northern part of the world and its location is more than 60 degree north (Generally the Moon is only visible from 60 degree north to 60 degree south), so it is not generally possible to sight the Hilal or the Crescent moon of any Arabic month. Even the moon is not generally visible in the 1st few days of the month in Sweden. But this month was exception. There was a little possibility today (Tuesday, January 27, 2009) to see the Crescent Moon for starting the Arabic month of Safar 1430 Hizri from the Southern part of Sweden which was known from different reliable International Moon Sighting websites and committees.
So, ANJUMANE AL BAIYINAAT, SWEDEN took proper steps for sighting the Crescent Moon for starting the Arabic month of Safar 1430 Hizri. But the Crescent Moon was not sighted by bare eyes today (Tuesday, January 27, 2009) anywhere in Sweden because of foggy as well as cloudy sky whole the day.
So, the ANJUMANE AL BAIYINAAT, SWEDEN have Announced “Inshallah the month of Safar 1430 Hizri will be started from Thursday, January 29, 2009 in Sweden.
