The Crescent Moon of the Month of Sha’ban, 1438 A.H.

The Moon-Sighting Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars in North America announces that Thursday, April 27th, 2017 will be the last day of the month of Rajab, 1438 A.H. and Friday, April 28th, 2017, will be the first day of the month of Sha’ban, 1438 A.H. for the entire region of North America.
This determination is based on the fact that there were no verified sightings of the crescent moon by the naked eye at sunset on Wednesday, April 26th, 2017, in any region of North America.
