Eid, No Eid,.. Eid, No Eid.. YEH!!!

 So Eid is Friday, No it’s Saturday, la2 la2 Friday, NOOOOOOO ya jama3a Saturday.. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

This was the issue for the whole day, we called several Islamic centers, and each one of them says different thing, ENNO O BA3DEAN!!!

I hate Eid in this country, each year we have the same problem, enno tayeb if someone saw the moon, what’s the different between the city I live in and the city 20 minutes away??? Can somebody explain this to me, cuz I don’t get it!!

My family were discussing if we should celebrate Eid tomorrow or Saturday, I don’t know, but as far as I know that if someone saw the moon and the other didn’t we should follow the one who saw it sa7?? So khalas, tomorrow is Eid for us, although everybody was ready for it on Saturday, bs khalas, BOKRA EL EID .. :)

Happy Eid everybody, the ones in Jordan… enjoy your vacation, and the ones here in the states, take tomorrow off guys :) yalla have fun..

Kol 3amo ento b 5ear :)

    The issue is more complicated than I thought. I’m not sure how your community does it but here basically they took into account the nearest “reliable” moon sighting from an authority figure (I think actually from ksa) did some calculations to figure out what time that would mean we would be able to physically see the moon where we are, which is what is referred to as “moonset” and if moonset is before sunset then eid is the next day, if it’s after then no eid, and it turns out on thursday “moonset” was a good 33 minutes after the sunset so no eid on friday for us. That’s probably more detail than you wanted to know but in case you were wondering what was going on behind the logic.
    Eid Mubarak!
