Thursday night 12/17/2009 & Friday 12/18/2009 is Muharram 1, 1431.
The Chicago Hilal Team would like to welcome the month of Muharram and the year 1431 Hijri. There were no valid reports of moon sighting anywhere in the United States. Consequently, Dhul-Hijjah completed its full cycle of 30 days, and Muharram begins at Maghrib on December 17, 2009. The 1st of Muharram is Friday, December 17, 2009.
The Chicago Hilal Team would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! May Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala make this a year of blessings for you and your family.
