WHY ARE WE OPERATING CFCO SITE?
CFCO is an independent
group of experts in the astronomy of moon’s visibility, and lunar Islamic
calendar. We help Muslims by accurately predicting the moon’s visibility in the
USA and other regions. We evaluate sighting claims by set standards to see that
Ramadan and Eidain dates are according to the observable Hilal of the Qur’an and
facts and information in order to empower those to whom the issue of crescent
visibility relative to Islamic dates is an important one. Once empowered, those
individuals will hold the decision makers to a higher level of accountability,
which will result in a higher level of responsible governance by religious
leaders. Remember the guidance of the Holy Prophet SAW: A community is as strong
as its rightly guided leaders. We should follow our leaders as long as they
follow the orders of Allah. If they don't, it becomes our responsibility to
correct them, before we replace them with those who are willing to lead
We plan to
organize Moonsighting seminars in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago,
Washington D.C., Houston/Dallas, New York and other cities with a sizeable
Muslim community between March and July 2007. We urgently need local sponsors.
If your center/mosque is interested, please contact us at 607-277-6706.
