‘Eid Mubārak! ‘Eid al Adḥā is on Friday 1st September, 2017.
The Crescent Committee of Canada has declared the 1st of Dhu al Ḥijjah to be on Wednesday 23rd of August, 2017. The 10th of Dhu al Ḥijjah (‘Eid al Adḥā) is on Friday 1st September, 2017 In shā Allāh.
Several regions in the east have reported verifiable crescent sightings. We are expecting multiple sightings in the Americas as the day progresses. The Supreme Judiciary Council of Saudi Arabia has also announced the beginning of the month. Therefore, the month of Dhu al Qa’adah shall end and the 1st of Dhu al Ḥijjah will be on Wednesday 23rd of August, 2017. The 10th of Dhu al Ḥijjah (‘Īd al Adḥā) is on Friday 1st September, 2017 In shā Allāh.
The first 10 days of Dhu al Ḥijjah are blessed days. May these days be filled with acts of worship, prayers and charity. Fasting is a recommended prophetic practice, especially the day before ‘Eid al Adḥā. This ‘Eid is also the time to share Udhiyyah/ Qurbani meats with family, friends and the poor. May Allah bless one and all with accepted worship and charity. May the world experience endless peace and harmony. May Allah accept the Hajj of the pilgrims who will assemble at the sacred lands at this blessed season.
