Rua on Monday
Rua on Monday, not Sunday



The moon for Shabaan was not sighted on Saturday. As a result, Nisful Shabaan, better known as Rua locally, will be celebrated on Monday 19 September and not on Sunday as indicated on the Islamic calendar.
That is according to the Muslim Judicial Council. The day which is commonly regarded as the two week countdown to the holy month of Ramadan is also respected for being the conclusion of the Muslim spiritual year.

On the evening of Rua, Muslims pray for forgiveness as well as for protection from hardship in the coming year.
It is also customary to fast on the last day of the spiritual year as well as on the first day of the next spiritual year. VOC will be broadcasting the mosque service of Nisful Shabaan from the Bridgetown mosque directly after Maghrib. VOC
