The Chicago Hilal Committee meeting is in session. No positive reports have come in thus far.
The Chicago Hilal Committee will convene on Thursday, April 23rd (Shaban 29, 1441) to determine the start of Ramadan 1441, inshaAllah. We will update this page periodically throughout the evening as reports come through.
Please note, however, that sunset in parts of the west coast will be close to 10:00 PM CDT, so it is possible that a final decision will not be made until 11:00 PM CDT.
