Assalam o Alaikum to every muslim... One more interesting thing is that there are no disagreements on the day of Eid Ul Adha in the whole world. If there is a problem(which is actually not) then it should be there for every month. Why it is so firm and world wide only at the time of Ramadan and then celebrating EID and you will never hear this problem in the rest of the year. Can somebody answer that........ Fee Aman Allah....

Commenting on fun2bwith Salam all: ( I agree with talibulislam, in principle) I think, sister, what's happening of the differing neighbouring mosques celebrating eid on different dates, is because of the fact that they follow the Islamic countries in the East. Best thing for Muslims in America and Europe is to unite and look for the crescent themselves and do not rely on the differences in the East, that stems, apparently, from political rather than theological. Also by unity, we can come forward to out western governments at least with 2 days (if we cannot agree on one predicted days for eid, Fitr or Adha, doesn't matter). Take care, may Allah bless every Hman (Moslem or non-moslem) for his/her quest for Truth. That's the Human existance is all about! Take care..

As-salaam Alaikum brothers and sisters It is horrible that we as Muslims can not agree on the day of eid. As was said before some believers contact their family in Islamic countries to see did they see the moon but you have to understand that their time and days are different and in my opinion you have to consider where you are, and everyone in that country should celebrate together. But it starts with Ramadan because if you start early or late you would not be able to celebrate the eid on time. From my experience my masjid celebrated the eid the day after my neighboring masjids did, and i was so embarrassed walking pass the other masjid with my eid garments on because we were the only one having eid. Also we can not be arrogant we have to rationalize and understand where other Muslims got there information from on seeing the moon or not. We have to unite because eid is our holiday, ours alone so all ethnicity's should celebrate it together. As-salaam Alaikum

asallamoalikum,if we hold on to quran & sunnah we could have eid togather but we r holding tight to our own madahabs,prophet Muhammad(saws)used to look 4 crescent at 29th of the lunar month & if he can't see he just finish the month & automatically move on to next one,isn't that simple?what i have seen people start fasting with Saudis cuz they have decided dates,start fasting with there own country & they did the same thing on end,they stop with Saudis,some break fast on 30th cuz they found that there family is celebrating eid in the other continent while they r in west,some ask NASA to tell them,NASA lol organization of nonmuslim to tell Muslims when u can have eid,we r joking,insulting & fooling our own self.may Allah give all of us hidaya insh'Allah ameen

Slam to All.... The thing is that...being a muslim we are using Science and Technology in every field of life...Then why not to use it in viewing the moon...sometimes when the life of moon is less then 7 hours then it is not possible to view it by naked eye....but still it is there... This is not changing something in Islam.....this is just to use the technology to help ourselves...... May Allah bless all the Muslims with Unity.....

The Sheykh of my local masjid has been using calculations for the last few years...and there's been a lot of disagreements among our community. I see both sides. I look at it like this: if Prophet Muhammad saw was alive today, I think he would probably use the scientific calculations, even though they didn't exist in his time. WE use technology to improve so much in our lives, why not calculating of the lunar calendar. On the other hand it is not the accepted sunnah. I will continue to follow my local masjid because it is my masjid and my friends are there that day.

Assalamualikum and Eid Mubarak to all of you. It is indeed very saddening how divided the Muslims are even in one city when it comes to Eid. The issue has been going on for years here in Canada and I feel very embarrassed when my non-Muslim coworkers ask me: Don't you have a head imam or head authority that should have a say in this? It is indeed very puzzling when I take my day off for Eid on a Monday for example, while my other co-worker takes it on a Tuesday just because he or she happens to be of a different ethnic group. Sometimes, that's what it comes down to. South Asian Muslims celebrating with their homeland countries while arabs are waiting for Saudi to make its announcement. There should definately be a more collective effort to establish an Eid committee who has the final say in this. Enough is Enough. Let's unite to fast on the same day and celebrate Eid on the same day. If we are so confused about the start of Ramadan, how do we know when to anticipate Lailat Al-Qadir in the ten final days of Ramadan? We can't even tell when the night of the 27th would be. It was last Wednesday in some mosques while Thursday in others. Ameen to that.

As salaamu alaikum There is more than enough evidence as to when and how to start eid. The problem I've noticed is that people are somehow under the impression that we must spot the moon in our own country before starting Ramadaan. So without taking into account reliable sources in Muslim counties, some of us start eid late. And eventhough there is sahih evidence against it, people use calculations for the number of days in Ramadaan. So it is up to the people who know to inform those that do not. And it is up to the people who do not know to except the sunnah. Otherwise we will always have different start and stop days for eid.
