The Shia Muslim Council (SMC) would like to announce that Tuesday September 15th 2015 will be the first day of the month of Dhul Hijjah, 1436. This is based on reported sightings of the moon by the naked eye during the sunset of Monday, the 14th of September from many locations. Based on that:

  • The Day of Arafa will be Wednesday, September 23, 2015
  • The Day of Eid al-Adha will be Thursday, September 24, 2015

We askAllah (SWT) to accept our good deeds, to return all Hajjis to their lands and families safely.The Shia Muslim Council of Southern California is an umbrella organization of 15 Shia Islamic centers in the southern California area.
