RAMADAN 1437/ 2016 Announcement

Based on the International global sighting criteria, the Crescent Committee of Canada has declared the beginning of the blessed month of Ramadan 1437.

  • First Tarawih is Sunday June 5th, 2016
  • First day of Fasting is Monday June 6th, 2016.

The new moon was sighted in Iquique, Chile and also declared as sighted in Saudi Arabia by the Saudi Arabian Judiciary Council on the eve of Sunday 5th June, 2016 (29 Sha’ban).  Therefore, the month of Sha’ban ends and we welcome the blessed month of Ramadan 1437.

We have verified the reports with our representatives in Iquique, Chile, namely Sh. Zakariya and Br. Aamir Khan along with a group of six Muslim moon watchers, who witnessed the new crescent. Our contacts in Saudi Arabia have also confirmed the official announcement by the Islamic Judge of the Judiciary Council.

May all of you have a blessed Ramadan. Ramadan Karim.
