To the respected believers in North America,

Peace be upon you.

The Moon-Sighting Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars of North America announces that Thursday, October 27th, 2022 will be the first day of Rabi al-Akhir, 1444 A.H. for the entire region of North America.

This determination is based on the fact that there were verified sightings of the crescent moon by the naked eye at sunset on Wednesday, October 26th, 2022, in Blacksburg, Virginia and Miami, Florida.

We ask God, the Most High, for success in performing good deeds and to hasten the Return of Our Master, Imam Mahdi (p).

On behalf of the Crescent Committee,
Sayyid M. Rizvi, Secretary-General

Important Islamic Events this Month:

  • 8 Rabi al-Akhir (Nov. 3): Birth of Imam Hasan al-Askari (p), 232 A.H.
  • 10 Rabi al-Akhir (Nov. 5): Death of Lady Masooma, sister of Imam al-Rida (p), in Qom (Year 201 A.H.)

Note: This announcement from the Crescent Committee is per the request of numerous community members across North America to help in identifying the beginning of the Hijri months.
