July 31, 2011

Assalamou alaikoum wa rahmatou Allahi wa barakatouh,

This is to let you know that the moon has been sighted in number of places around the world, in accordance with our agreed upon criteria. Therefore, the first day of Ramadan 1432 will be on Monday, August 1st, 2011, in shaa Allah Taala.

Furthermore, I would like to remind you that the committee has confirmed that this year's Sadaqat-ul-Fitr will continue to be $7.00 per person.

On behalf of MCM, and myself, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all, and your families, a very blessed Ramadan. May Allah Taala make it easy for us, change the conditions of Muslims around the world to the best, bringing the obedience of Allah, faith and safety, peace and prosperity to all Muslims and to accept our fast, prayers, recitations and all of our good deeds in this holy month of Ramadan and beyond, and to continue to shower us with His mercy and blessings.

Please don't forget to support and include in your duaa all our brothers and sisters who are struggling to change in many places around the world and those who are either suffering under occupation or confronting famine and hardship.

Ramadan Mubarak and best wishes to all.

Wa assalamou alaikoum wa rahmatou Allahi wa barakatouh.

Salam Elmenyawi
