Ramadan 1442h

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). The Only Owner of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection).

 Ramadan 1439h

Monday April 12, 2021

The crescent moon to commence the month of Ramadan 1442h WAS SIGHTED in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  Based on the information HCC received, we will begin the sacred month of Ramadan from tomorrow Tuesday April 13, 2021. In Sha Allah.

As we are still fighting with the pandemic situation, we ask Allah swt to make this time easy upon the entire humanity, help us fast during the days, pray during the nights, and take the full advantage of this holy month by doing good deeds throughout the month of Ramadan. We seek refuge with Allah from the pandemic of COVID-19 and remove this epidemic from the world entirely. We ask Allah swt to keep all of us safe, healthy and full of eiman. A’ameen Ya Rub al A’alameen!

Ramadan Kareem to all of you.
