In the Name of God, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful
December 11th, 2015
The Crescent Committee of the Shia Muslim Council announces that Sunday, December 13, 2015 will be the first day of the month of Rabi’ al-Awwal 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 Friday, December 11th.
We ask Allah (swt) to give us victory and success in reaping the maximum benefits this month as we honor the Holy Prophet PBUH, Imam Hasan al-Askari (as), and Imam Jafar as-Sadiq (as), 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).
