Thursday, is the first of Jumada I 1439 H.

Date: 17/01/2018 A.D 30 Rabih2 1439 H

The Juristic Office of the Institution of His Eminence, the late Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra), issued a statement in which it announced that Thursday, January 18, 2018 is the first of the month of Jumada I 1439 H. based on the jurisprudential opinion of His Eminence, the late Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra).

Following is the text of the statement:

The new crescent (central conjunction) for the month of Jumada I 1439 H. will be born on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 A.D. at 02:17 a.m. (GMT) that is, at 04:17 a.m. Beirut time. The crescent can be sighted in the western part of the African Continent and most of North America and South America by the aid of telescopes, and it can be sighted in Central America by the naked eye if there is a clear weather. Moreover, Wednesday marks the last day of the month of Rabi’ II for the countries in which Rabi’ II started on December 19. As such, Thursday, January 18, 2018 is the first of the month of Jumada I 1439 H. for all the regions that share even just a part of the night with the regions where the sighting is possible, according to the jurisprudential opinion of His Eminence, the late Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) who deems it enough to sight the crescent, whether by the naked eye or by the aid of telescopes, in any region with which we share a part of the night.

We invoke Allah, the Most Exalted, to make this month a month of worship and full obedience to Him and to grant the believers success in doing what pleases and satisfies Him. He is the Most Merciful.
