After decades of scientific research on Prayer Times, a booklet, "Fajr & Isha" has been written by Khalid Shaukat of moonsighting.com giving information from Qur'an, Hadith, practices of Sahabah, developments from 8th century onward, astronomy and scientific basis. Moonsighting.com has developed algorithms, for function of latitudes and seasons based on observations after decades of research, included in the booklet.

Another book, "Memoirs of Prophet Muhammad's Life" written by Khalid Shaukat presents the dates in the Christian calendar for important events in Prophet's life, his birth, Me'raj, hijra to Medinah, battles of Badr, Uhad, and his death. Dates are calculated for visibility of new crescent moon in the Christian calendar. It is proven that 12th Rabi al-Awwal (Monday) is the correct date for ALL THREE EVENTS, the Prophet's birth, his arrival in Medinah, and his death. Either one or both books manuscript can be sent by postage mail (not by email), for cost of xeroxing and mailing. Request by clicking on:

The earliest reported sighting of the new crescent was on May 19, 2015 from Melbourne, Australia.
