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 Friday, December 30th, 2016 will be the last day of the month of Rabi al-Awwal, 1438 A.H. and Saturday, December 31st, 2016, will be the first day of the month of Rabi al-Thani, 1438 A.H. for the entire region of North America.
This determination is based on the fact that there were no verified sightings of the crescent moon by the naked eye at sunset on Thursday, December 29th, 2016, in any region of North America.
We ask Allah, the Most High, for success in performing good deeds and hasten the Return of Our Master, Imam Mahdi (p).
