Muhammad Sohail (MCW member) from Iquique, Chile, reported: I saw the moon tonight, Wednesday, August 7, with naked eye around 6:59 pm. There were two other people with me who saw the moon. The moon was quite new, and was like an old palm leaf. We finished Maghrib, and moon was going to disappear soon.
As we share the night with Chile, Muhammad Sohail’s authentic moon sighting report also applies to North America. The Fiqh Council’s position is substantiated, alhamdolillah.
