يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, so that you may learn self-restraint, – Quran 2:183 Following the recommendations of The Fiqh Council of North America, DMS announces that Friday, April 24, 2020 will be the first day of Ramadan 1441. Eid ul-Fitr, the first day of Shawwal, will be on Sunday, May 24, 2020 inshallah. May Allah SWT grant us acceptance during those blessed days and nights.
