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 Sunday, May 21st, 2023, will be the first day of Dhu al-Qidah, 1444 A.H. for the entire region of North America.

We ask God, the Most High, to accept your fasting, grant success in performing good deeds, and to hasten the Return of Our Master, Imam Mahdi (p).

Islamic dates in the month of Safar.

Safar 7 Martyrdom of Imam Hassan al-Mujtaba AS in one account, but Birthday of the 7th Imam, Musa al-Kazim AS. Safar 7 is a special date in Islamic history. Some say that it is the day that Imam Hassan AS was martyred but most say that he was martyred on Safar 28, the same day as Prophet Muhammad SA. Safar 7 is the day that the 7th Imam AS was born, however since that day falls in between Ashura and Arba'een, the birthday of Imam Kazem AS is not celebrated, but his life is remembered and ziyarahs are recited.

An excerpt from the sermon of Lady Zaynab (p) in Sham addressing Yazid:
"So plot whatever you wish to plot and carry out your endeavor, and intensify your efforts, for, by Allah, you shall never be able to obliterate our mention, nor will you ever be able to annihilate our revelation, nor will your shame ever be washed away. Your view shall be proven futile, your days limited in number, and your wealth wasted on the Day when the caller calls out, "The curse of Allah be upon the oppressors..."
[Al-Majlisi, Bihar al-Anwar, vol 45, p. 135]


من كلام للحوراء زينب (ع) مخاطباً يزيد بن معاوية:
"فَكِدْ كَيدَك، وَاسِعٌ سَعْيَك، وَنَاصِب جَهْدَك، فَوَاَللَّهِ لَا تَمْحُو ذَكَرْنَا، وَلَا تُمِيتُ وَحيَنًا، وَلَا يرحَضُ عَنْك عَارُهَا، وَهَل رَأْيِك إلّا فَنَدْ وأيّامكَ إلاَّ عَدَد، وَجَمعُكَ إلَّا بَدَدْ، يَوْمَ يُنَادِي الْمُنَادِي أَلَا لَعْنَةُ اللَّهِ عَلَى الظالمينِ..."
