Eid al Fitr / Shawwal 1437/ 2016 Announcement

The Crescent Committee of Canada received no reliable reports of the new crescent moon sighting for the month of Shawwal 1437 on the evening of Monday July 4th 2016 (29th Ramadan). Therefore the blessed month of Ramadan completes 30 days and the 1st of Shawwal (Eid al Fitr 2016) is on Wednesday 6th of July, 2016.
We have been in contact throughout the day with our representatives and moon watchers across the globe from the far east, Middle East, Europe and the Americas. All have reported no sightings. South American regions, where there was a slim chance for sighting have all reported no sighting, including Panama, Chile, Peru and the Caribbean.
We wish the entire Muslim world a happy Eid al Fitr, with acceptance of prayers, worship, fasting and charity. We pray for a world of peace and harmony for everyone.
