The Moon-Sighting Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars of North America announces that Friday, October 8th, 2021, will be the first day of the month of Rabi al-Awwal, 1443 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 Thursday, October 7th, 2021 in many locations in different states.
We ask God, the Most High, for success in performing good deeds and to hasten the Return of Our Master, Imam Mahdi (p).
