In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
The Crescent Moon of the Month of Safar, 1441 A.H.Monday, September 30th, 2019 will be the first day of the month of Safar, 1441 A.H. for the entire region of North America. This determination is based on the fact that there were verified sightings of the crescent moon by the naked eye at sunset on Sunday, September 29th, 2019 from many locations. Therefore, the Day of Arbaeen will be on Saturday, October 19th, 2019. We ask God, the Most High, for success in performing good deeds and to hasten the Return of Our Master, Imam Mahdi (p). On behalf of the Crescent Committee, Sayyid M. Rizvi, Secretary-General
