Ramadan 1444 AH:
The Astronomical New Moon will be on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, at 17:23 Universal Time. On that day, there is no place on earth where at sunset the elongation is 8 degrees and the moon is 5 degrees above the sun. Hence, the first day of Ramadan will be on Thursday, March 23, 2023, Insha’Allah.

Eidul-Fitr 1444 AH:
The Astronomical New Moon will be on Thursday, April 20, 2023, at 4:12 Universal Time. On April 20, the elongation is more than 8 degrees and the moon is more than 5 degrees above the sun everywhere in North America. Hence the first day of Shawwal will be on Friday, April 21, 2023, Insha’Allah.

Expected date for Eid- al-Adha 1444 AH:
Based on Saudi Ummul-Qura Calendar is Wednesday, June 28, 2023

In regards to these blessed occasions, we are reminded to keep in mind that there are allowances for valid scholarly difference of opinion in determining the beginning and end of the auspicious Month of Ramadan. Mutual respect and humility are pillars of the requirement for unity as we collectively strive to please our Creator in all aspects of our lives.We encourage every organization and individual to follow that which is most unifying for the community, including consultation with religious leadership.

May Allah keep us on the straight path, facilitate us to have a blessed and joyous Ramadan, and accept our devotional acts solely for His sake, Ameen.
