The Crescent Moon of the Month of Dhul-Hijjah 1439 AH
August 12th, 2018
|On behalf of the Shia Muslim Council of Southern California, we would like to announce that the first day of Dhul-Hijjah 1439 AH will be Monday, August 13th, 2018. The crescent moon was not sighted on Saturday, August 11th, 2018. The day of Arafah will be on Tuesday, August 21st, 2018 The day of Eid al-Adha will be on Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018 As nearly 3 million Muslims descend upon Makkah in these blessed days, we are reminded of the universal spirit of brotherhood that is embodied by the pilgrimage. We hope that American Muslims will observe this day with full piety and dignity—making dawah to our neighbors, co-workers, and friends as we embrace this joyous season. May Allah Most High accept our efforts in His way and allow us to reap the benefits of Dhul Hijjha. May He accept the Hajj of those sisters and brothers fortunate enough to embark on this unforgettable journey and allow us all to visit His beloved house in the years to come. Ameen.
