* For those following local moon sightings, today is 29 Dhul Qa’dah 1433 and therefore if the moon is sighted tonight (of which there is a high probability that it will be sighted)  then Dhul Hijjah will commence on Wednesday as per the Saudi Announcement. However, if for some reason the moon is not sighted locally then some people may choose to start Dhul Hijjah on Thursday 18 October 2012.
