Abstract

Along with the development of technology, various observation techniques have been introduced to assist observers for crescent visibility. Hence, this study was conducted to review the literatures which are related with the techniques that have been used during the observation of crescent starting from Babylon era until now. The qualitative method has been used in this study to collect data based on library research. Then, the inductive method is used to analyse the data. The results from these literature reviews showed that many writings, ideas and discussions that are related with the techniques used during observations have been analyzed by scholars and academicians. Nevertheless, there is no specific study and discussion about these observation techniques for determining the crescent from Shariah perspective.
