|On behalf of the Shia Muslim Council of Southern California, we would like to wish the community Ramadhan Kareem.
We have received confirmation of several visual moonsightings in North America and the first day of Ramadhan will be on Saturday May 27, 2017.
This is the month which the Holy Prophet has declared the best of months, its days the best of days, its nights the best of nights, and its hours the best of hours.
Inshallah we encourage the community to attend the events at their local masajid for prayers, Qur’an, duas and Iftar programs.
We pray to Allah to guide us and protect us from the worldly temptations as we seek to get closer to Him during this holy month.
Community leaders, please forward this message to your congregations.
Below is a list of Ramadhan programs at various local communities:
Islamic Education Center of Orange County
Shia Ithna-Asheri Islamic Jamaat of Los Angeles (Pico Rivera, CA)
Yaseen Educational Foundation
Jafaria Islamic Society
