Date: 25/11/2019 A.D 28Rabih Alawal 1441H H

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 Thursday November 28, 2019 is the first of day of Rabih Athani 1441,according to the jurisprudential opinion of the late Religious Authority, His Eminence,Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra).

 Following is the text of the statement:

The new crescent (central conjunction) for the month ofRabih Athani1441 will be born on TuesdayNovember 26,2019 A.D.at 15:06 GMT: that is, at 17:06 PMBeirut time.

 As the picture above shows, the crescent cannot be sighted, Tuesday evening, by the naked eye nor by the aid of telescopes whether in Beirutor in any region in the world except in certain regions we do not share a part of the night with. Thus, the following day (Wednesday 27) is the day that completes the month of RabihAlawal.And Thursday November 28, is the  first day of the month of Rabih Athani, except for the regions that share a part of the night with the regions where the crescent can be seen on , Tuesday  evening, 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 that  shares a part of the night with the regions where thecrescent can be sighted   , whether by the naked eye or by the aid of telescopes.

We invoke Allah to make us in this month,and bless the Muslim nation and bestow unity and victory on it.  He is ever-near, responding to the call, and He is the Most Merciful.
