As it is noticed in the above figure, sighting with armed eye is possible in some of the regions In North in the regions colored navy blue with which we share a part of the night. Thus, Friday the 11th of June is the first of Zul Qi’da in these regions, while Saturday the 12th is the first in the regions that do not share a part of the night with the sighting regions (according to the jurisprudential opinion of His Eminence, the late Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) who deems it enough to sight the crescent, whether by the naked eye or by the aid of telescopes, in any region with which we share a part of the night whether with the naked or armed eye to establish the beginning of the month in our region) .
We invoke Allah, the Most Exalted, to relief us and guide us to do good deeds . He is the Hearer.
