    Another Ramadhaan, another discussion about moon-sighting lol.
    أَوَمَن كَانَ مَيْتًا فَأَحْيَيْنَاهُ وَجَعَلْنَا لَهُ نُورًا يَمْشِي بِهِ فِي النَّاسِ كَمَن مَّثَلُهُ فِي الظُّلُمَاتِ لَيْسَ بِخَارِجٍ مِّنْهَا كَذَٰلِكَ زُيِّنَ لِلْكَافِرِينَ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ


    {“And is one who was dead and We gave him life and made for him light by which to walk among the people like one who is in darkness, never to emerge therefrom? Thus it has been made pleasing to the disbelievers that which they were doing.’”}

    lol We knew it was coming. But I Aboo Mohammed shouldn't be blamed for this one, as he was really confused. A lot of people make it a big issue for no reason, and that's what really ticks me off. Especially the ones who try to fast on a different day on purpose and create disunity among the community.

    Salaam Alaikum.

    I can't understand how anything about different "Countries"(as in multiple nations with separate governments) would have anything to do with a ruling of Islamic Shari'a(Except in the concept of "Countries" being a bid'a).

    Now I can understand how a ruling could be related to different lands, towns etc... and how some scholars might argue that something like the Begining and End of Ramadan is different for different places... but if so, there should also be differences between two distant towns within such a "Country", and such scholars should also provide evidence from the shari'a which shows or suggests the maximum distance(or condition) between two places(cities, towns etc..) which allows both to just accept moon sightings of the other.

    So far I haven't seen any evidence from such scholars. They just say "muslims living in different countries should..." and they appear to mean "muslims living under different governments should..." as if living under different governments by choice is recognized and allowed in Islam and as if there are divine rulings describing how to continue living like that.
    and they seem ignorant that Islam only recognizes only One Nation of Muslims no matter which land they live in and allows only one Khalifa for all Muslims(at any given time).

    If I am not mistaken, even in the past, all Muslims informed each other and spread the news of new moon sightings, to the best of their ability as distant as they could and the witness of one Muslim was enough even if he came from out of the city.
    And as far as I know, anyone who received the news in time would follow.

    A FIRST step toward Khilafah could be making people AWARE.
    Probably more than half the Muslims in the world don't even know that having a KHALEEFA is a MUST.
