Asalaam Alaaykum wr wb
This blog is for us to share whatever inspires us, and to help and encourage one another to get the most from the month of Ramadhan that we can. If you have any concerns, questions, or topics for discussion, either comment or make a post! Let me know if you need help.
The Crescent Moon Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars in North America announces that there were no reports of sightings for the crescent moon of the month of Shawal in North America at the time of sunset, Wednesday, August 7, 2013. As a result, Thursday, August 8, 2013, will be the 30th of the holy month of Ramadan - "Ikmaal Iddah" - and Friday, August 9, 2013 will be considered the 1st of Shawal (the Day of Eid al-Fitr).
We ask the Almighty Allah to bless your work and shower you with His Blessings in this holy month, and to hasten the appearance of the Imam of our time (peace be upon him.)
