AMJA's official declaration regarding the beginning of the blessed month of Ramadan 1436H.
In the name of Allah, the Infinitely Merciful, the Grantor of Mercy
All praise is due to Allah, and may salutations and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family, his Companions, and those loyal to him.
It is with great joy that the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America congratulates the Muslims in the U.S. and abroad everywhere on the approach of the blessed month of Ramadan, and announces to them the following:
Wednesday (6/17/2015), will be the final day of Sha'ban. Thursday (6/18/15) will be the first day of Ramadan.
Thus, we send this announcement and praise Allah, the all mighty, and ask Him to lift the hardship placed on Muslims throughout the world, and specially in Syria and Burma, we ask Allah to bless this month of Ramadan and to guide us to the best, and to accept our good deeds, Ameen.
