Today, Sunday is 29th of Sh'aban and we request Muslims in North America to observe the Hilal for the blessed month of Ramadan and report.
As per the lunar calculation and its visibility curve that can be seen here http://www.crescentmoonwatch.org/nextnewmoon.htm , Hilal is unlikely to be seen in North America. Therefore, if we don't receive authentic and verifiable Hilal sighting reports tonight then Ramadan will begin Tuesday, Sept.  2nd Insha’Allaah.

However we encourage all to try to sight the Hilal on the evening of Sunday, August 31 as well and send any reports to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
