Ramadhan 1440

السلام عليكم,  

Alhamdulillah the new moon has been sighted in Chile, South America, which was verified by scholars of CC & HCC.

Thus Sha'ban ends tonight, with the 1st fast of Ramadhan tomorrow, Monday, May 6th, and the 1st Taraweeh tonight after Eshā'.

The Crescent Committee and the Hilal Council of Canada wishes everyone a blessed Ramadhan. رمضان مبارك

Sha'ban 1440

posted Apr 6, 2019, 5:20 AM by Shakir Pandor

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته،

There was no sighting of the moon, thus Rajab completes 30 days, and the 1st of Sha'ban 1440 will be on Sunday, April 7th, 2019.

Please note that the 1st of Ramadhan will either be Monday, May 6 or Tuesday, May 7.

Ahādīth on the virtues of Sha'ban:

Usamah ibn Zaid reported: I said, “O Messenger of Allah, I do not see you fasting any month as much as you fast during Sha’ban.” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “It is a month people neglect between the months of Rajab and Ramadan. It is a month in which the deeds are raised to the Lord of the worlds and I like for my deeds to be raised while I am fasting.”

Sunan al-Nasā’ī 

Abu Musa reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, Allah descends in the night of the middle of the month of Sha’ban and he forgives all of his creatures except for an idolater or one harboring hatred.”

Sunan Ibn Mājah

Memorandum of Understanding Between HCC and CC

posted Mar 28, 2019, 12:55 PM by Shakir Pandor

Salām Everyone, 

Alhamdulillah, yesterday, Wednesday March 27 2019, the Crescent Committee and the Hilal Council of Canada signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together in declaring the beginning of each new lunar month in order to reduce the differences in the Muslim community and pave the way to greater unity. 

Both committees have agreed to benefit from the expertise of each party and promote unity in the community to the best of their ability.

We pray that Allāh accept these efforts and assists us all in creating and leaving behind a harmonious Muslim community in Canada. Āmīn.

Was Salām,

Shakir Pandor,
