|1st Moonsighting Web Site on Internet [Started in 1993] with Prayer Times and Qibla|
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, and astronomy/scientific basis. Moonsighting.com has developed algorithms, for function of latitudes and seasons based on observations from different places, included in the booklet.
Another book, "Memoirs of Prophet Muhammad's Life" written by Khalid Shaukat presents the dates in the Christian calendar for Prophet's life, his birth, Me'raj, Hijra to Medinah, battles of Badr, Uhad, and his death. Dates are calculated for visibility of new 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.
