To the respected believers in North America,

The Moon-Sighting Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars of North America announces that sighting of the crescent moon was confirmed by the naked eye in Albuquerque, New Mexico and Southern California at sunset on Thursday, April 20th, 2023. Therefore, based on the multiplicity of horizons ruling, the first day of the month of Shawwal, 1444 A.H. will be as follows:

Eid Mubarak! We ask God, the Most High, for success in performing good deeds and to hasten the Return of Our Master, Imam Mahdi (p). 

This year we will be having a community Eid prayer on Friday 4/21 at The Legacy Ballroom (4530 E Gold Dust Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85028) on intersection of 44th St & Shea Blvd.

Prayer will begin at 9am.

Zakat al-Fitra for this year will be $10/person so make sure you give it before the beginning of the Eid prayer. You can also send that via Zelle just indicate that it is for Zakat al-Fitrah. Please bring food and desserts to share with everyone after the prayer!  

We cordially invite you to join us for Eid Picnic on Sunday, April 23rd to celebrate the end of the holy month of Ramadan. We look forward to sharing this special occasion with you and your loved ones. Location is RED MOUNTAIN PARK (7745 E Brown Rd. Mesa, AZ 85207). Cost for the picnic is $5, it includes food and drink.
