THE QUR’ĀN AND THE MOON – Divine Methodology for Monthly Recitation of the Qur’ān by IMRAN N. HOSEIN
THE QUR’ĀN AND THE MOON
This book on the topic of ‘The Qur’ān and the Moon— Methodology for Monthly Recitation of the Qur’ān’, is a companion volume to my previous book entitled ‘Methodology for Study of the Qur’ān’; but which will now be renamed: ‘
The Qur’ān and the Stars—Methodology for Study of the Qur’ān’. I was in London on the evening of 29th day of Shabān 1440(H) when it became known that the moon of Ramadān was not seen anywhere in UK, and yet schoolboys in the Muslim community declared that Ramadān had commenced in UK. The ‘sheep’ and the ‘cattle’ then followed them blindly!

Only lunar time can take us to a timeless world; we can climb even up a mountain to sit in a cave, in an effort to travel to other worlds of space and time, — but if we do not live in lunar time we will travel to nowhere!
They are probably unaware that only lunar time can take us to a timeless world, and that whoever has never tasted timelessness can eventually become a prisoner of the Dunyah. The Imām of Purley Masjid in Croydon, London, made a tearful request that I address the subject of moon-sighting for the commencement of the lunar month in Islam so that Muslims might be better-guided on that subject.
This book emerged in consequence of my attempt to respond to that request, and I am confident that our explanation of the subject
