AMJA Announcement About Ramadan

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 His Messenger, his family, his companions, and those who follow him.

To proceed:

The Assembly of Muslims Jurists of America (AMJA) congratulates all Muslim communities in the United States of America for the arrival of the month of Ramadan. It is happy to announce to them the results of their following of the moon sighting reports from various agencies: Tuesday the 13th of April will be the first day of the blessed month of Ramadan, and Monday the 12th of April will be the completing day of Sha'ban (the 30th of Sha'ban). This is because the moon sighting was not possible the eve of Monday  (Sunday night), according to scientific facts.

As we announce this, we advise the Muslims in our country and throughout the world to be keen on attaining unity and harmony. We also advise everyone to fear Allah and to do their best in acts of worship and obedience in this blessed month, and to be keen on taking the means of safety.

May Allah give everyone a blessed year. May Allah accept good deeds from us and all of you.

بيانبيان مجمع فقهاء الشريعة بأمريكا بخصوص دخول شهر رمضان المبارك سنة 1442 هـ

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
الحمد لله، والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله، وعلى آله وصحبه ومن والاه، أما بعد: فتهنئ أمانة مجمع فقهاء الشريعة بأمريكا عموم الجاليات الإسلامية في الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية بمقدم شهر رمضان، ويسرها ان تعلن لهم نتيجة متابعتها لقضية ترائي الهلال، مع الجهات المختلفة أن يوم الثلاثاء ١٣ إبريل سيكون أول أيام شهر رمضان المبارك و يوم الإثنين ١٢ إبريل المتمم لعدة شعبان ، و ذلك لامتناع حصول الرؤية ليلة الإثنين وفق ما اكدته الحقائق العلمية .

و إذ نعلن هذا نوصي المسلمين في بلدنا هذا وجميع أقطار العالم بالحرص على اجتماع الكلمة و الائتلاف و نوصي الجميع بتقوى الله وبذل الجهد و الوسع في الطاعات خلال هذا الشهر المبارك و الحرص على أسباب السلامة ، وكل عام وأنتم بخير، وتقبل الله منا ومنكم صالح الاعمال.
