    Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr Announcement

    “O you who believe, fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you may (learn) self-restraint.” Qur’an 2: 183

    The Islamic Shura Council of Southern California thanks to the Fiqh Council of North America for their help in determining the beginning of Lunar months including the months of Ramadan and Shawwal.  The Fiqh Council uses Makkah al-Mukarrama as a conventional point and takes the position that the conjunction must take place before sunset in Makkah and the moon must set after sunset in Makkah.

    On the basis of this method the dates of Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr for the year 1438 AH are established as follows:

    1st of Ramadan will be on Saturday, May 27, 2017
    1st of Shawwal will be on Sunday, June 25, 2017

    May Allah (SWT) keep us on the right path and accept our fasting and prayers. Ameen.

    Sincerely,
    Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi
