Sighting Of the New Moon

Background
The Conference of Rulers during its 92nd meeting on 15 and 16 March 1972 agreed to determine the dates for the start of fasting, Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha for the whole of Malaysia. Prior to 1972, the determination of these dates fell under the jurisdiction of the individual states.

The sighting of the new moon to determine the start of fasting for the whole of Malaysia was carried out for the first time on 29 Shaaban 1392 corresponding to 7 October 1972 in Teluk Kemang, Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan. Since then, the declaration for the start of fasting, Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha has been made by the Keeper of the Rulers' Seal via radio and television after receiving the assent of His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and Their Royal Highnesses the rulers of the states.
