Rajab & Sha’ban
Since the first crescent of Sha’ban 1441 was not sighted after sunset on 29th of Rajab, Rajab will complete 30 days.
Sha’ban 1441 will begin at Maghrib on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 and the 1st day of Sha’ban 1441 will fall on Thursday.
Nisf Sha’ban (Laylat ul Baraat), the eve of 15th Sha’ban, will be observed on the evening of Wednesday, April 8th.
SBIA encourages the community to perform their nawafil at home in the evening of Laylat ul Baraat as we will not host our annual gathering in light of the current health situation in Santa Clara County.
