Crescent Moon Dhu al-Qa'dah 1444 AH
There were no verified sightings of the crescent moon by the naked eye at sunset on Friday, May 19th, 2023, in any region of North America.
Thus, Saturday, May 20th, 2023 was the last day of the month of Shawwal. Sunday, May 22nd, 2023 is the first day of the month of Dhū al-Qaʿdah 1444.
We ask God, the Most High, for success in performing good deeds and to hasten the Return of Our Master, Imam Mahdi (A).
