The Juristic Office at the Institution of the late Religious Authority, His Eminence, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) issued a statement in which it declared that Saturday , April 6,2019is the firstday of the month ofSha’aban 1440H

Following is the text of the statement:

The new crescent (central conjunction) for the month of Sha’aban   1440H.will be born on Friday  April 5,2019  A.D. at 8:50 international time; that is 11:50  Beirut time.

The crescent can be sighted, by the aid of  telescopes in  north, central and south America , which  are regions we share with a part of the night  with. Thus the first of the month of Sha’aban is  Saturday , April 6   in all the regions which sharea part of the nightwith the regions where the moon can be sighted,and  the following day , Sunday, April 7, in the regions which do not share a part of the night with  , in accordance with the jurisprudential opinion of the late Religious Authority, His Eminence, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) who considers that the beginning of the month is established if the crescent can be sighted in any region with which we share a part of the night, whether by the naked eye or by the aid of telescopes.

We invoke Allah to make it a blessed month  on the Muslim nation, and to increase the reward of the believers and ward off any harm that might inflict  them. He is the Most Merciful.
