Zainabia IEC wishes you all EID MUBARAK (Sunday 25, 2017)
The Moon-Sighting Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars in North America announces,
based on reports received much later during the night, that the crescent moon was sighted by the naked eye during the sunset of Saturday, June 24, 2017 in Southern California.
Based on this sighting,
and the opinion of Sayyid Sistani regarding Multiplicity of Horizons
, the first day of the month of Shawwal, 1438 A.H (Eid al-Fitr) will be as follows:
Sunday, June 25, 2017, for all the areas under the horizon visibility curve from Orlando, FL, through New Orleans, LA, Phoenix, AZ, to Los Angeles, CA; including all areas in close proximity to this visibility curve.
Monday, June 26, 2017, for the rest of North America, thus completing the 30 days of the month of Ramadhan through Sunday June 24th.
As per the view of Ayatullah il-Uzma al-Khui, Ayatullah Khomeni (rahmatullahi alyhi) and the view of al-Imam ar-Raahil (rahmatullahi alyhi), along with al-Wali al-Faqeeh (hafizahullah),
Sunday is the first of Shawwal 1438 A.H
and Eid ul-Fitr for the entire USA and Canada.
Note: Zainabia Islamic Education Center is pleased to provide information of all public centers and Masjid to unite the community. Inshallah our hope is to have all lovers and followers of Ahlul Bayt to celebrate Eid under one roof in the future.
As you celebrate Eid tomorrow with your family, please take a moment to remember your brothers and sisters in Islam who have suffered in Para Chinar, Grenfell Tower (shia families died along with other muslim brothers and sisters), London mosque terrorist attack, and Qatif, during the last 10 days of Ramadan.
