Dear Brothers and Sisters:
As a reminder of our policy for determining start and end of Ramadan, the Islamic Centers listed below follow global moon sighting anywhere in the world that shares part of the night with the USA.
It is expected that In-Shaa-Allah, the holy month of Ramadan will start either on Wednesday, May 16th or Thursday, May 17, 2018. The final Ramadan announcement and confirmation will be made Tuesday after Isha, unless we receive confirmed sighting reports earlier on Tuesday.
Let us turn our attention on preparing for the arrival of this blessed month and to plan on getting maximum benefit from the days of fasting and nights of prayers. We look forward to seeing all of you at our centers for Taraweeh and Iftars.
Jazakum Allahu Khairun
