Dahwul Ardh Day - Day Of Earth’s Expansion. According to some traditions this is the birthday of Prophets Ibrahim and Jesus (peace be upon them). Also known as Yowm Dahw al-Arz.
Today is Dhul-Qidah 29 in the United States and Canada. The last day of Dhul-Qidah (sometimes it is 29th and sometimes 30th) is remembered as the Martyrdom of the 9th Imam Muhammad al-Jawad AS.
Do you a member of a moonsighting group? Think about looking for the new crescent moon after sunset tonight. If the moon is not seen, tomorrow will be Dhul-Qidah 30.
Dhul-Hijjah 01 is the Wedding anniversary of Imam Ali AS and Fatima Zahra AS. Congratulations on this happy occasion.
In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
The Crescent Moon of the Month of Dhu al-Hijjah, 1441 A.H.

To the respected believers in North America,
Peace be upon you.
The Moon-Sighting Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars of North America announces that Wednesday, July 22nd, 2020, will be the first day of the month of Dhu al-Hijjah, 1441 A.H. for the entire region of North America.
This determination is based on the fact that, so far, there were verified sightings of the crescent moon by the naked eye at sunset on Tuesday, July 21st, 2020 in Jacksonville, Miami, and Orlando, Florida, and Houston, Texas.
We ask God, the Most High, for success in performing good deeds and to hasten the Return of Our Master, Imam Mahdi (p).

Iran marks anniv. of US downing of passenger plane 1988

Iran is commemorating the 31st anniversary of the downing of an Iranian Airbus A300B2 passenger plane by a US Navy guided-missile cruiser in the Persian Gulf waters in 1988.
Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): Iran is commemorating the 31st anniversary of the downing of an Iranian Airbus A300B2 passenger plane by a US Navy guided-missile cruiser in the Persian Gulf waters in 1988.
The commemoration ceremony marking the downing of an Iranian Airbus A300B2 passenger plane by a US Navy guided-missile cruiser took place on Tuesday ahead of the incident's 31st anniversary at Mehrabad Airport in Tehran.
The ceremony was attended by Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, Minister of Roads and Urban Development Mohammed Eslami, and CEO of Iran Air (HOMA), Touraj Dehghani-Zangeneh.
The Iran Air Flight 655 was an Airbus A300B2 civilian aircraft flying in Iranian airspace over the Strait of Hormuz from the port city of Bandar Abbas to Dubai, carrying 274 passengers and 16 crew members on July 3, 1988, when a US Navy guided-missile cruiser, USS Vincennes, fired missiles at it, killing all the 290 onboard.
US officials claimed the warship had mistaken the passenger plane for a warplane, even though the warship was equipped with highly advanced radar systems and electronic battle gear at the time of the attack.
US did not admit legal liability or formally apologize to Iran. In fact, a year later, the captain of the USS Vincennes, William C. Rogers, was cleared of any wrongdoing in the incident, and was even awarded America’s Legion of Merit medal by then President George Bush for his “outstanding service.”
The US behavior towards the Iranians and other nations shows the country has been committing inhumane acts to achieve its “ominous objectives” and using human rights as a pretext to pursue its “excessive demands and illegitimate interests,” Iranian Foreign Ministry had said in a statement on the 30th anniversary of the incident.
