Eid Announcement from AMJA

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

All praise is due to Allah, and may His praise and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family, his Companions, and those that followed. The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) congratulates the Muslims in North America, as well as the Muslims of the entire Ummah, for the approach of the blessed Eid Al-Fitr.

Astronomers have asserted that it is scientifically impossible to see the new moon on this night. Therefore, tomorrow, Wednesday the 12th of May, will be the 30th of Ramadan, and Thursday the 13th of May will be the blessed day of Eid Al-Fitr, the 1st day of Shawwal.

We ask Allah to accept from all of us our fasting and night prayers, to complete Ramadan for us with His pleasure and His protection from Hellfire, and to allow Ramadan to return to us and the entire Ummah with goodness, blessings, honor, and strength. We ask him to aid our brothers and sisters in protecting Bayt Al-Maqdis with His strength and to show us His all-encompassing power against the oppressors.

بيان مجمع فقهاء الشريعة بأمريكا بخصوص دخول شهر شوال المبارك سنة 1442هـ

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم الحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله وعلى آله وصحبه ومن والاه، أما بعد: فتهنئ الأمانة العامة لمجمع فقهاء الشريعة بأمريكا مسلمي الولايات المتحدة خاصة، ومن ورائهم مسلمي الأمة عامة باقتراب عيد الفطر المبارك، ويسرها أن تعلن أنه نظرا لما قرره أهل التخصص الفلكي من استحالة الرؤية علميا هذه الليلة، فإن غدا الأربعاء الثاني عشر من شهر مايو هو المتمم لعدة رمضان ثلاثين يوما، وأن الخميس الثالث عشر من شهر مايو هو يوم عيد الفطر المبارك، نسأل الله أن يتقبل منا جميعا صيامنا وقيامنا، وأن يختم لنا رمضان برضوانه وبالعتق من نيرانه، وأن يعيده علينا وعلى الأمة كلها بالخير والبركة والرفعة والتمكين، وأن يمد إخواننا المرابطين في أكناف بيت المقدس بمدد من عنده، وأن يرينا في الظالمين عجائب قدرته.
