Islam is a religion of LOVE. This website is an attempt to reflect on the real, moderate and tolerant religion.


In my country England different mosques follow different dates for Eid and Islamic months. Majority mosques follow Saudi but some mosques say this is wrong and we have to calculate moon sighting according to England and they do Eid or start dhul hijjah one day early or late than Saudi. Who is right?

The majority of scholars are of the opinion that each country should have its own moon sighting, and that they are not obliged to follow the moon sighting in Saudi Arabia, except of course those going for Hajj.. therefore, if there is a trustworthy source of moon sighting in a particular country, it should be followed.. hence, the majority of mosques as per your question, would be wrong in this case..
And Allah knows best..
