There is much more than what you mentioned. Ramadhan is the month in which the quran was revealed, the month in which the muslim armies experienced great victories over the enemies of Islam. Last year the site contained recipes, tafseers, screensavers and lots more, why not visit this ramadhan and maybe revise your views inshallah.

can i ask a dumb question: why do we all wait for news from saudi arabia as to moon sightings before the date of ramadhan is determined, and before eid can be declared?

the met is able to forecast the positions of the moon up to a year in advance arent they, so why all the uncertainty?

Salaams sister

The prophet saw said " Fast when you see the moon", so when we hear that the moon has been sighted by muslims on the 29th of shaaban then we start fasting if its cloudy and the moon cannot be seen then we fast on the next day. Waiting for saudi arabia is foolish because the moon can be seen anywhere. Some muslims attach overdue importance to saudi while others to morocco or pakistan or bangladesh, we dont follow any particular country we just follow the sighting by muslims regardless of where they are. Also we can use the calculations of the met to determine when the moon is likely to be born and its visability, but the hadith states fast when you see the moon, so it has to be a physical sighting on the 29th of shaaban, if not then its the next day.Our months start when the moon is sighted so its either 29 days or 30 days.

err, didnt he say that because they didnt have satellite technology in those days?

now that we know the moon is there (albeit perhaps obscured from naked eye view cos of clouds but visible through satellite and telescope), isnt it right to say that we might as well go with the met reports?

yo showkot, im not a brother...

and anisa, u wait for moon sightings from saudi? why? we wait for the moon sighting here, on the eastern seaboard of north america. they have this committeee, hallall commitee or somthn rather, and they confer with every station they got in diff cities across the easter seaboard and then we can tell if its ramadan or not. woah, that was one run-on sentence.
