The Juristic Office of the Institution of His Eminence, the late Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah (ra), issued a statement concerning the beginning of the month of Muharram 1443H. Following is the text of the statement:
The new crescent (central conjunction) for the month of Muharram, 1443 H will be born on Sunday 8 August 2021 at 13:50 (GMT) that is 16:50 Beirut summer time.
As noticed in the picture above, sighting is possible on Sunday evening with the armed eye only in some of the regions of central and north America.Therefore,Monday 09/08/2021 is the first day of the month of Muharram in all the regions that share a part of the night with the said regions, while Tuesday is the first day with the regions that do not share a part of the night with them, 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.
May Allah, The Most Exalted, multiply your reward for reviving the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (a.s) and his family and companions and make it a year of blessings and victory over the enemies , He is all-Hearing.
