In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

All the praises and thanks be to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah.

The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) wishes to congratulate all Muslims in the United States and around the world with the happy occasion of the approach of Eid Al-Fitr, and we announce as follows:

> Tomorrow: Sunday, July 27th, 2014 will be the 30th and final day of Ramadhan, due to the lack of any reports of a moon sighting. Therefore Monday, July 28th, will be the date of Eid Al-Fitr this year.

On this great occasion, AMJA Resident Fatwa Committee also prays to Allah to lift the oppression and trials from the entire Muslim nation in general, and from our brothers and sisters in Syria and Gaza especially, and to stop the bloodshed, and to fulfill what He promised by saving them, giving them victory, and establishing them in the land.

Allah is all-knowing of man's intentions, and He is the one who guides to the straight path.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله فإن مجمع فقهاء الشريعة بأمريكا يزف إلى مسلمي الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية ومن ورائهم الأمة كلها أطيب تهانيه باقتراب عيد الفطر المبارك، ويعلن عليهم ما يأتي:

أن غدا الاحد الموافق 27 من شهر يوليو من عام 2014م هوالمكمل لعدة شعبان ثلاثين يوما، بناء على عدم ورود أي خبر بشأن رؤية الهلال. و على هذا يكون الاثنين 28 من شهر يوليو هو أول أيام عيد الفطر المبارك.

وإن المجمع ممثلا في لجنته الدائمة للإفتاء إذ يعلن هذا البيان على مسلمي الولايات المتحدة ليبتهل إلى الله جل وعلى أن يرفع البلاء عن أمة محمد عامة، وعن إخوتنا في بلاد الشام وفي غزة خاصة، وأن يحقن دماءهم، وأن ينجز لهم وعده بالإنجاء والنصرة والتمكين، والله من وراء القصد وهو الهادي إلى سواء السبيل.
