16 Jun 1st day of Ramaḍān 1436 AH = Thursday, June 18th, 2015, in shā’ Allāh
As-salāmu ʿalaykum wa raḥmatullāhi wa barakātuh,
This is to inform you that the 1st day of Ramaḍān will be Thursday, June 18th, 2015, in shā’ Allāh. This means that we will start praying ṣalātut-tarāwīḥ the night of Wednesday, June 17th, in shā’ Allāh.
Since the moon of Ramaḍān was not sighted, we shall be completing thirty (30) days of Shaʿbān, in accordance with the ḥadīth of the Messenger of Allāh (sallAllāhu ‘alaihi wa sallam):
(Fast when you see the crescent. If it is obscured to you, then complete thirty days of Shaʿbān. And break your fast when you see the crescent. If it is obscured to you then fast thirty days),
[transmitted by al-Bukhārī and Muslim].
The following are the iqāmah times at Muṣallá As-Ṣaḥāba (2835 Dumaurier Ave., Ramsey area):
Al-Fajr Prayer – 20 min. after the adhaan
Adh-Dhuhr Prayer – 1:30pm
Al-‘ʿAṣr Prayer – 20 min. after the adhaan
Al-Maġrib Prayer – 10 min. after the adhaan

The iqāmah times will remain so unless further advised. Due to limited space, jumu’ah, ʿishāʾ and tarāwīḥ prayers will be for brothers only.
Bārak Allāhu fīkum.
