To the respected believers in North America,

Peace be upon you.

The Moon-Sighting Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars in North America announces that Monday, May 6th, 2019 will be the first day of the month of Ramadan, 1440 A.H. for the United States and southern parts of Canada.

This determination is based on the fact that there were verified sightings of the crescent moon by the naked eye at sunset on Sunday, May 5th, 2019 from many locations in southern and western states.

Ramadan Mubarak! We ask God, the Most High, for success in performing good deeds and to hasten the Return of Our Master, Imam Mahdi (p).
