    Well it depends because some are doing it on Tuesday due to the moon not being sighted as a new moon tonight. It depends on whether you follow the lunar calender or not.
    yh, some are doing it tomorro some on tues, but its been confirmed in saudi and every yr we follow wht they say

    I hate that my lady calendar is such that I miss the first few and the last few. I always miss out on the fun parts :sad:

    I've realised that I'll be pretty occupied by exams this year though so I'm essentially expecting Ramadan to fly by

    I know it is weird, my auntie does it according to Saudi and while we are fasting for the final time, most people are celebrating Eid and I find it so strange why it's always split.

    I'd say ask the local Mosque or watch Noor TV or something, they told us ours was on Tuesday as we follow the nearest Muslim country.

    The mosque we follow are starting on Tuesday too!

    It's just so confusing because some people I know are starting theirs tomorrow! At least I know now some people are starting on Tuesday too

    I know I find it so confusing, like why is it all different but I'm glad mine isn't on Monday as I feel so underprepared

    I think it depends on which school of thought you follow. Hanafi follow I think Saudi or the first country to spot it (so don't skip a day).

    Whereas Shafi'i, follow the nearest country (in our case Morocco). We follow the Hanafi school of thought so should be doing it tomorrow, but our mosque for some reason says otherwise (but our Imams like to be different all the time anyway :lol:)

    Ah right, it confuses me half of the time, I'd rather everyone do it together to be fair because half of the people will be celebrating Eid while the rest are still fasting. Can't wait for Ramadan in Winter.

    [QUOTE=hxfsxh;65479437]Ramadan is on Tuesday for the UK though, right? because only Saudi Arabia have sighted the moon and I'm pretty sure there's a hadith that states you should observe Ramadan when your own country sees the moon.[/QUOTE

    Yeah exactly you should see it in your own country!
