The Crescent Moon of the Month of Shawwal, 1439 A.H.

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

The Crescent Moon of the Month of Shawwal, 1439 A.H.

To the respected believers in North America,

Peace be upon you.

The Moon-Sighting Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars of North America announces that Friday, June 15th, 2018, will be the first day of the month of Shawwal, 1439 A.H. for the entire region of North America.

This determination is based on the fact that there were reported sightings of the crescent moon by the naked eye during the sunset of Thursday, June 14th, 2018, from many locations in the United States.

We ask God, the Most High, for success in performing good deeds and hasten the Return of Our Master, Imam Mahdi (p).
