Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani
Due to the fact that this year (1442 lunar year), the month of Sha’ban began on Monday, March 15, 2021, the month of Ramadan will begin on Tuesday, April 13, 2021, or on Wednesday, April 14, 2021. Therefore, if the sighting of the crescent is confirmed anywhere in the world on Monday, April 12, 2021, the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan will be Tuesday, otherwise it will be Wednesday. If the sighting of the crescent is confirmed on Monday, it will be announced here Insha’allah. Therefore if not announced, the sighting is not confirmed.
Question & Answer

What is the opinion of his honor Allamah about the month of Safar? Is it an ominous month?

What is his opinion about the auspiciousness and ominousness of days in a lunar month? Considering some narrations, it seems that seven days in a month are ominous.

Ominousness of times and places is a function of ominousness of their people; as God has said: ﴿طَائِرُكُمْ مَعَكُمْ ۚ[1]; “Your ominousness is with you” and therefore, every time and place are ominous for those who become miserable in them, and are auspicious for those who become prosperous in them. Therefore, no day is considered ominous or auspicious intrinsically. Yes, it is possible that some days of the year, regarding the astronomy times and nature conditions and their effect on human’s temperament, can or cannot be appropriate for some activities such as cupping therapy and sexual intercourse and with this respect, these days are counted as auspicious or ominous, whereas they have no feature for other activities and accordingly are not auspicious or ominous.
