SHAFAQNA –

The Juristic Office of the Institution of the late Religious Authority, His Eminence, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) issued a statement in which it declared that Monday, April 20, 2015 is the first of the month of Rajab 1436 H., according to the jurisprudential opinion of the late Religious Authority, His Eminence, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra).

Following is the text of the statement:

The new crescent (central conjunction) for the month of Rajab 1436 H. will be born on Saturday, April 18, 2015 A.D. at 18:57 p.m. GMT; that is, 21:57 p.m. Beirut time. According to the characteristics of the crescent, it is impossible to sight the crescent in the horizon of Beirut city Saturday evening… Moreover, it is impossible to sight the crescent in any region in the world. Therefore, Sunday, April 19, 2015 A.D. is the thirtieth, and hence the last day of the month of Jumada II, thus Monday, April 20, 2015 is the first of the month of Rajab 1436 H. in the eastern and western hemispheres.

We invoke Allah to grant the believers success in this month to worshipping Him and performing good deeds and Him accepting these deeds. We also invoke Him to relieve our nation of its ordeals and mark it with dignity and success.
