To the respected believers in North America,
Peace be upon you.
The Moon-Sighting Committee ofÃÂ the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars in North America announces that Sunday, October 2nd,ÃÂ 2016, is the last day of Dhil Hajjah, 1437 A.H. andÃÂ Monday, October 3rd, 2016, will be the first day of the month of Muharram al-Haram, 1438 A.H.for the entire region of North America.
This determination is based on the fact that there were no verified sightingsÃÂ ofÃÂ the crescent moon by the naked eye at sunset onÃÂ Saturday, October 1st, 2016, in any region of North America.
The Day of Ashura, the anniversary of the martyrdom of Imam Husayn (as), will therefore be on Wednesday, October 12, 2016.
