Ramadan 1435

    Ramadan is the ninth (9th) month in the Islamic Calendar and one of great religious significance for Muslims around the world. It is characterized by worship, spiritual contemplation and fasting. The Holy Quran states: “O you who believe, fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you may (learn) self-restraint.” Qur’an 2: 183.
    The Fiqh Council of North America recognizes astronomical calculation as an acceptable Shar’i method for determining the beginning of Lunar months including the months of Ramadan and Shawwal. FCNA uses Makkah al-Mukarrama as a conventional point and takes the position that the conjunction must take place before sunset in Makkah and moon must set after sunset in Makkah.
    On the basis of this method, the Islamic Association of the Shenandoah Valley is pleased to announce its calendar and events for Ramadan 1435 (2014 CE). Please keep checking back on the website for further details as they become available.
