Please see the following for more details about the Fiqh Council of North America's new approach for an Islamic calendar.
(Some communities may decide to maintain their approach of moon-sighting. Please confirm with your local mosque to determine when to start Ramadan.)

The Islamic Fiqh Council of America should consist scholars that represent the wide variety of muslims and the different groups in America.
The Islamic Fiqh Council of North America should have one scholar from ICNA , one from MAS, one from Jammat wal Sunnah, one from Tabliqi Jamat, one from African Muslim population like Warith Deen Muhammad, Hilal moonsighting committee, Shia council and other prominent groups. This would better represent the muslim population here and decision made by majority vote will be accepted by all Inshallah.
