The Crescent Moon of the
Month of Shawwal, 1436
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
Saturday, July 18, 2015 will be the first
day of the month of Shawwal, 1436,
for the entire region of North America.
This is based on no reports of verified
sightings of the crescent moon at
sunset on Thursday, July 16, 2015, in
any region in North America. Thus,
Friday is considered the
last day of Ramadan.
We ask Allah (swt) to accept our
fasting and good deeds during the holy
month and to hasten the Return of
Our Master, Imam Mahdi (ajfs).
