Ash-Shaykh Bin Baaz, rahimahullah, was asked the following question,


ما هو الدعاء الذي يقال عند رؤية الهلال؟

“What is the du’a that is to be said when sighting the crescent (i.e. the moon at the beginning of the month)?”


لم يثبت في هذا حديث عن النبي ﷺ، جاء في عدة أحاديث فيها ضعف…

“There is no hadith authentic from the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam in regards to this. A number of hadiths has been reported concerning it. However, they contain weakness in their chains.” End translation. [Reference]
