The Moon-Sighting Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars in North America announces that Wednesday, July 6th, 2016, will be the first day of the month of Shawwal, 1437 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 Tuesday, July 5, from many locations.
We ask Allah (swt) for success in performing good deeds and hasten the return of our Master, Imam Mahdi (ajfs).
Important Islamic events in this month:
