Montreal June 5th , 2016:
Assalamou alaikoum wa rahmatou Allahi wa barakatouh,
This is to let you know that the moon has been sighted in Chile, South America, in accordance with our agreed upon criteria. Therefore, the first day of Ramadan 1437 will be on Monday, June 6th , 2016, in shaa Allah Taala.
Furthermore, I would like to remind you that this year’s recommendation for Sadaqat-ul-Fitr is $8.00 per person.
On behalf of MCM, and myself, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all, and your families, a very blessed Ramadan. May Allah Taala make it easy for us, change the conditions of Muslims around the world to the best, bringing the obedience of Allah, faith and safety, peace and prosperity to all Muslims and to accept our fast, prayers, recitations and all of our good deeds in this holy month of Ramadan and beyond, and to continue to shower us with His mercy and blessings.
Please don’t forget to support and include in your duaa all our brothers and sisters who are struggling to change in many places around the world and those who are either suffering under occupation or confronting famine and hardship.
Ramadan Mubarak and best wishes to you all.
Wa assalamou alaikoum wa rahmatou Allahi wa barakatouh.
