    thank you phil…may God bless u!
    happy Eid day everyone. i think that we should go according to the islamaic calendar. looking for the moon every year by telescop is a crap. i wonder how those old mullahs can see that with -7 eye sight…lol

    hope this issue resolves soon!

    it is quite confusing! living in a same country we celebrate events at different days.is this what we call unity?..hahaha

    why can’t we create a calendar according to the moon. every year moons revolves around the earth in a same manner than why it is impossible to do so? will these question ever be answered or understud by the ruhat-e-hilal committee?

    not in the same manner :P scientifically it doesnt go with the orbit of earth around the sun. hence its a bit off every year plus or minus. but there are methods to determine the exact position of the moon. the problem however is that someone has to “see” it. and if the weather is foggy or has too much dust … it might be impossible to see the moon.

    anyway … explain how we keep an islamic calender? so we had 30 days in ramadan while mid east countries had 29 days. so in other words the calendar for muslims is not consistant …. its a problem is nt it ? and to solve it what do we do? use the calendar that Saudi Arabia uses? so the question is why cant we just do 29 days when we know saudis did that and thats what going to show up on the calendar :P
