Moon Sighting

The first day of the month of Rajab has been confirmed to be Monday, April 20, 2015

Ali Ibn Abi Talib (a.s.)
On the 13th of the month of Rajab, twenty-three years before the migration of the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) a child was born in the family of Abu Talib, light of whom kindled the whole World. Yes! We are talking about Ali (a.s.) the pious man whose childhood and infancy period lasted in such a pure and chaste way that he himself stated in Nahjul Balagha, 'The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) used to pick me in his lap and embrace me and chew the food and put it into my mouth.'

Imam Ali, The Commander of The Faithful
Twenty-three years before the Hijra, on the thirteenth of Rajab, a miraculous birth took place. Fatima-bint-Asad, the wife of Abu Talib, was Divinely Guided with sudden labor pains to the Holy Kaaba. As her immense labor pains weighed her down, Fatima knelt before the Kaaba and began praying to Allah to make the birth of her child comfortable and easy. Before she knew it, the walls of the Kaaba miraculously split open by the Will of Allah. Fatima entered the Kaaba, and then the Holy walls reunited and joined as one. . .  

The attributes of Ali: The Voice of Human Justice
The Commander of the Faithful Imam Ali, peace be on him, is the most distinguished personality of Islam after Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be on him. His entire life is the life of struggle for the advancement of Islam. He was a great combatant, a great judge, a great philanthropist and the most pious person of his time. . .
