– i was as confused as anyone who was monitoring on facebook the date of eidl fitr.
– lets simplify things. Our Darul Ifta have spoken with the concurrence of the team from NCMF that the moon was not seen last night. At any rate, if by chance today we will see the moon, then we may break our fast. But the khutba will still be tomorrow, August 9, 2013.
– there is no hadith nor sunnah from our Prophet (SAW) that we will simply follow what other countries are doing. And this is not the first time that things like this happen.
Hence, we will fast today for the 30th day of the Holy Month.
