A Message from Imam Council of Halifax
The Nova Scotia Council of Imams informs the Muslim Community in Halifax that no authentic sighting of Ramadan crescent has been identified so far, leading to the completion of Sha'ban to 30 days.
Based on gathered evidence, the Imams Council declares Thursday June 18 to be the first of Ramadan in Nova and the first Taraweeh prayer will be held in all Masajid starting tomorrow night after Isha prayer (Wednesday June 17). The first Suhour of Ramadan 1436 AH will be Thursday morning before Fajr.
We urge all Muslims to purify their intentions to fast this month out of strong faith in Allah and submission to His commandments while seeking His reward in this blessed month.
Intention for the fasting the month of Ramadan should be firmed up on Wednesday night anytime between Maghrib and Fajr.
The Imams of Nova Scotia wish the community the best Ramadan ever and encourage the community to heavily invest in this blessed month for their hereafter and to be the best ambassadors of Islam to their fellow Canadians during this month.
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad, salla Allah alaihi wa sallam, said “Whoever fasts Ramadan out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven" He also said: “Whoever spends the nights of Ramadan in prayer out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.” [Bukhari & Muslim]
Ramadan Mubarak and May Allah bless us all in this blessed month (Ameen)
