The 1st of Sha’ban 1439 corresponds with Tuesday April 17th, 2018.
The Crescent Committee declared this based on multiple confirmed verifiable sightings of the new crescent (hilal) in the United States (namely, Virginia, California, Texas and Florida) on the eve of the 29th of Rajab (16th April, 2018).
We wish everyone a blessed Sha’ban and we all look forward to the anticipated month of Ramadan.
اللهم بارك لنا في شعبان و بلغنا رمضان O Allah! Grant for us Barakah in Sha'ban and grant us life to witness Ramadan!
