In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
The Crescent Moon of the Month of Ramadan, 1436
To the respected believers in North America,
Peace be upon you.
The Moon-Sighting Committee of The Council of Shia Muslim Scholars of North America announces that Thursday, June 18, 2015 will be the first day of the month of Ramadan, 1436, for the entire region of the United States and Canada.
This is based on reports of verified sightings of the crescent moon at sunset on Wednesday, June 17, in many regions of the United States.
We ask Allah (swt) for success in performing good deeds in this holy month and to hasten the Return of Our Master, Imam Mahdi (ajfs).
