Did anyone try to see the moon locally in USA?

August 30, 2011 8 comments

As salaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

Wondering if anyone had the opportunity to go and see the moon either yesterday or tonight before maghrib.

A brother and I went to a high location to try to spot the moon yesterday but were not able to see it. QadarAllah (It was the decree of Allah)

The local community here in Groton CT goes by the calculation method so they had already announced the ‘Eid will be today, Tuesday August 30, 2011.

Another brother informed me that the moon was sighted in Chili around 1am EST in South America. However, seems like it was a single occurrence and hence it was not given weight due to lack of other reports.

But today when we went to see the moon before maghrib, we were able to see it alhamdulillah with the naked eye. I had two other witnesses who also saw the moon with me and it was clearly the first day of the lunar month. The time was around 7:38 EST when we saw the moon. It looked exactly like it is shown in the chart below for the first of the lunar month.

The chart below confirms that the new moon will be sighted in the Northern Hemisphere today, August 30, 2011.

Here are some pictures I took with my phone but you can not see the moon in here. It was hard enough to see with the naked eye so its not visible in the pictures.


Here is a raw picture…..

Conclusion: I have decided, along with the 2 other brothers who saw the moon, that we will make up the day inshaAllah because we clearly made ‘Eid one day in advance. This was clear from the shape of the moon that we saw before Maghrib time, Tuesday, August 30 2011.

Comments are welcome on the issue.

BarakAllahu feekum

We would like to extend our deepest and sincerest Eid greetings to all our readers of this blog.

We hope that we bring valuable content to your lives through which you can raise yourselves in émaan and understanding of the Deen.

If we have made any mistakes, we ask you all to forgive us and to make duá for us. For verily, our sins and mistakes are many. And we ask Allah, the One who forgives all sins to forgive our sins, hidden and apparent, small and large, and that He accepts our actions we did in the month of Ramadhaan. We ask Allah for steadfastness upon His Deen after the month of Ramadhaan.

We make the greeting for all of you that is reported from our pious predecessors on the day of Éed: “Taqaballa Allahu mina wa minkum Al-‘Amal Al-Saliha” (may Allah accept from you and us the good deeds)

What to do if ‘Eid falls on a Friday?

November 24, 2009 2 comments

Eid falls on Friday must one pray Jumah
Question:

If ”Eid Al-/ Fitr or Eid Al-Adha fell on Friday, . In this case what should be done? Should we pray Zuhr if we dont offer the Friday prayer, or is there no requirement for it if we do not perform the Friday prayer?

Answer:

Whoever prayed the Eid prayer on Friday, it is permitted for him not to attend the Friday prayer on that day, except for the Imam, for he is obliged to perform it for whoever wishes to attend it -be they from among those who attended the Eid prayer , or those who did not attend it . If no one attends the Friday prayer , he is relieved of its obligation and he should offer the Zhur prayer. In saying this, the scholars cite as evidence the narration of Abu Dawud in his Sunan, on the authority of Iyyas bin Abi Ramlah Ash-Shami, who said : I witnessed Mu’awiyyah bin Abi Sufyan, may Allah be pleased with him , asking Zaid bin Arqam: Did you witness two Eids falling on the same day with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhe was salaam ? He said : Yes . He asked : ” And what did he do ? He replied : ” He offered the Eid prayer , then he gave permission for those who wished, to perform the Friday prayer , saying : Whoever wants to pray, then let him pray . (Abu Dawud no . 1070)

Also cited as evidence is the narration of Abu Dawud in his Sunan, on the authority of Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhe was salaam , which states that he said : Two Eids have fallen on this day, so whoever wished, it will siffice him instead of the Friday prayer; and we are offering the Friday prayer.( Abu Dawud no 1074)

This proves that it is allowed on Fridays for those who have attended the Eid prayer not to perform the Friday prayer , but that the Imam is not excused, because he sallallahu alayhe was salaam said : And we are offering the Friday prayer.

Also cited as evidence is the narration of Muslim, on the authority of An-Nu’man bin Bashir, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhe was salaam used to recite Surah Al-A’la and Surah Al-Ghashiyah in the Eid prayers and the Friday prayers and he might have prayed both of them one day and recited them in both prayers ( Muslim no 878) So whoever does not attend the Friday prayer from among those who have prayed the Eid prayer, he must pray it as Zhur , in accordance with the evidences which prove that it is obligatory to offer the Zhur prayer for those who do not attend the Friday Prayer .

And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, Muhammad and upon his family and Companions.
