    Its obvious why there isn't; there are places in the world where the moon is sighted, and places where it isn't. We can't change the fact. What is sad, however, is when there are three different Eids in the same city.

    That's true. But if the crescent is sighted in say Pakistan, then whether or not India for example, doesn't see it because it's cloudy there is no denying the fact that it's there. Shouldn't at least neighboring countries join forces on such issues? Yes, they didn't sight it, but there neighbor did.
    It would make things easier for Muslims living in Western countries too and eliminate the 3 different Eids thing.
    What happens to those who go for Hajj and return afterwards to there country which might be 3 days behind the Saudi calendar? And what about A'raafat as a day of I'baadah…kind of odd to consider a day that the pilgrims are not in A'raafat as A'raafat, no?

    Lol...I understand what you mean. I asked my dad about that too and I was told that you still follow with the country that you are residing in at that moment...even if you fast for more than 30 days. Let me confirm that for you...give me a sec.

    Edit- Here you go...http://www.islam-qa.com/index.php?re...ng&txt=Fasting

    BTW- Sheik Abdul-Azeez al Ba'az was the late Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia(Allah yerhamu)...so it's pretty reliable.

    That is something that really bothers me sometimes too... You know, wanting to apologise for something but not having the means to - a word to the wise, apologise and make peace with those whom you conflict with quickly, lest you cannot later!
    I absolutely agree there. I like to think I might be forgiven, since I was just 10. But I do think about it quite often especially because the girl specifically told me to pay it back.
