In the Name of God, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful
February 9th, 2016
The Crescent Committee of the Shia Muslim Council announces that Wednesday, February 10, 2016 will be the first day of the month of Jamaadi al-Awwal 1437 AH for the entire region of North America.
This determination was made is based on the fact that there was reported sightings of the crescent moon by the naked eye during the sunset of Tuesday, February 9th, from many locations.
We ask Allah (swt) to give us victory and success in reaping the maximum benefits this month as we honor Lady Zainab (AS) and Lady Fatimah al-Zahra (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).
Jazakum Allahu Khayran,
Shia Muslim Council of Southern California
