    My husband is doing Eid today in conjunction with his country's observance. He and the kids are at home doing their gifts and I am at work......But as I do think it's funny that he is celebrating in conjunction with the Jewish New Year........haha!!

    Assalmo alaikum:


    I glad fully announced that there were AUTHENTIC sightings of the Hilal moon in North America on Saturday, August 30, 2008. So inshallah Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated tomorrow Wed, October 1,2008.

    Some major Islamic organizations that declared Eid to be tomorrow are:


    * ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) [already announced]

    url: [http://www.icna.org/]

    * ISNA (Islamic society of North America) [already announced]

    URL: [http://www.isna.net/events/Special-Announcement/FCNA-ANNOUNCES-EID-AL-FITR.aspx]

    * Chicago Hilal Committee (for all of greater Chicago) Still awaiting for maghrib ...most likely yes

    url: [http://www.iieonline.org/chicagohilal/declaration.htm]


    * Zaytuna Institute (they said that heard the news of moon sighting but still have to confirm them. They will make final decision at 7.30 pst) url: [http://www.zaytuna.org/]


    * Shariah Board of America (the moon is sighted in Florida and Texas) [ALREADY ANNOUNCED]

    url: [http://www.shariahboard.org/HomePage.aspx]

    * Ulema Council of North America (announced)


    And many more...so finally EID MUBARAK to all of you guys. Those of you who celebrated today..EID MUBARAK TO YOU 2...

    Furthermore i just want to give some tips regarding EID-UL-FITR

    1) Eat sth sweet before you offer salat-e-eid
    2) Change your way e.g if you went to masjid from one of the street then on your way back to home come from other street)


    EID MUBARAK:

    IN England there was some differences- some accepted the KSA view and did Eid on Tuesday, whereas some went with it being Wednesday 1st Oct.

    Generally I have been following my local mosque and they followed Saudi and other parts of the muslim world that also did it on Tuesday.

    However, I am becoming more convinced with moonsighting done by astronomical calculations- but only stop at the fact that the sunnah was and is that when a muslim whose character is sound and has healthy eyesight sees the crescent, then ramadan/eid can be observed.

    Allah knows best.

    And Eid Mubarak to all my bros and sisters around the world.

    this eid was very intersting-or better yet very sad-it was sad to see how us muslims each had their eid seperately. it was truly ridiculous.
    i dont get it-there is only ONE moon in this universe, so if somebody in china saw the moon then that means that a new month has started. common sense right?!!!

    I totally agree maryjo - I don't know what the fatwa is on it, but it only make sense as you mentioned that there is only one moon and if it is sighted then its sighted.
    I wonder if we will ever have Eid celebrated universally on the same day
