Date: 10/08/2018 A.D 28 Thul-Qi'da 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 Sunday ,August12,2018 is the first of the month of Thul-Hijja 1439 H , 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 of Thul-Hijja 1439 H. will be born on Saturday,August11 ,2018 A.D.at 09:58GMT: that is , at 12:58 p.m. Beirut time .

The crescent cannot be sighted, Saturday evening, by the naked eye nor by the aid of telescopes in Beirut,But can be seen by the aid of telescopes in some areas in north, central America (southern region) and most regions of south America(figure1).

Therefore,Sunday, August 12, 2018 is the first of the month of Thul-Hijja 1439 in the regions that share a part of the night withthe regions where the crescent can be sightedand hence MondayAugust 13, 2018will be the first of the month of Thul-Hijja 1439H in the regions that do not share a part of the night with the regions where the crescent can be seen, 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 shower the pilgrims with His mercy and accept their deeds, along with every believer. May these days be days of goodness and blessings. May Allah unite the word of Muslims and defeat their enemies, He is All-Hearing and Responsive, He is the Most Merciful of the merciful.
