Jazakom Allah khairan
:salam2:We r having it tomorrow. Our masjid is following global moonsighting
my local masjid said its tomorrow. accroding to the cited moon....
My mosque has also said that its on wesenday although some people in my town are making it on tuesday - very crazy world we live in seriously.
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!!
i heard that in UK its today
lool yeah tahts a funny situation
well most people are ment to be doin eid -ul fitr on wensday witch is tomorrow and some people are following saudi rules and doin it today
In NY its Wednesday inshallah. Eid Mubarak!
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]
* ISNA (Islamic society of North America) [already announced]
* Chicago Hilal Committee (for all of greater Chicago) Still awaiting for maghrib ...most likely yes
* 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]
* 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 to all brothers and sisters
HAPPY EID TO ALL
I will be celebrating tomorrow Oct 1st Wednesday Inshallah
My mosque told us it would be today.
Also, I checked the lSNA-(International Society of North America) , ICNA (International Circle of North America) and FCNA (Fiqh Council of North America).
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
