In the Name of God, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful
January 12th, 2016
The Crescent Committee of the Shia Muslim Council announces that Tuesday, January 12, 2016 will be the first day of the month of Rabi’ al-Thaani 1437 for the entire region of North America.
This determination was made due to a lack of reports of verified sightings of the crescent moon at sunset on Sunday, January 10th.
We ask Allah (swt) to give us victory and success in reaping the maximum benefits this month as we honor Imam Hassan al-Askari, and we ask Him as well to increase their remembrance among ourselves, our family, and our friends. Finally, we ask Allah (swt) to hasten the Return of our Master, the Awaited Imam (ajfs).
