Eid Mubarak

"'Eid is for those whose fasts have been accepted and whose salaat are worthy of reckoning and every day when one does not commit a sin it is 'eid" (Nahjul Balaghah, maxim 427)

To all believers in North America,

May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon all of you.

The Crescent Moon Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars in North America announces, based upon several reports which were received from across North America, that tomorrow Friday 09/10/2010 is considered the 1st of Shawwal of the year 1431 for the United States of America (except Alaska) and some parts of Canada. Therefore Eid al-Fitr will be tomorrow for the above mentioned areas.

We ask The Almighty God to bless your work and shower you with His Blessings in this month, and to hasten the appearance of the Holy Imam of our time.
