In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
The Crescent Moon of the Month of Shaban, 1441 A.H.
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 Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 will be the last day of the month of Rajab and that Thursday, March 26th, 2020, will be the first day of the month of Shaban, 1441 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 Tuesday, March, 24th, 2020 in any region of North America.
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
