    I'm reading all this confusing news... what's the truth?

    Fars News Agency :: Saudi Arabia's Mistake in Announcing Eid al-Fitr Angers Muslims Worldwide

    Any authentic messages about this from SA?

    Do we need to fast an extra day and pay kafarah?

    The Iranians aren't exactly fans of Ahlus Sunnah (or Saudi for that matter) are they?- this throws doubt on its credibility immediately, though I am sure others can come and give better information insha'Allah

    The society had said that people actually saw the planet Saturn and not the crescent moon that marks the beginning of the Islamic month of Shawwal.
    LOL yeh the two look so much alike!

    Since particular members on this forum have lost their sense of being just to all regardless of affiliation, and believe that for some there is no justice, and if you do give justice to those who deserve no justice then you yourself are counted as being one who sides with them, defends them, shows sympathy to them. I therefore, must clarify and make clear that

    Obviously this is another lie from the filthy shia. Other countries saw it anyways, so it doesn't matter.

    They actually do look the same during day. Because the Saturn has rings therefore and you can only see one side of saturn so it looks kind of half-curve of a circle (Hence why Saturn is called the planet with one ear).

    Actually, it's not because of this article that I posting this message, it's because someone on fb said that some sheikh from an university in SA confirmed this news.
    But all of this is too vague and it's too much hear-say.

    I opened this thread to see if this news can be confirmed ...

    Assalaamualayakumwarahmatuallah,

    The earliest sighting of the new crescent was on Monday, August 29 in Chile if we disregard Saudi Arabia sighting.

    09:20:01 p.m. Monday August 29, 2011 in Asia/Riyadh converts to
    02:20:01 p.m. Monday August 29, 2011 in Chile/Continental

    I don't know much about astronomy, but the planets that I've seen looked more like stars. So I don't know how saturn could ever be mistaken for the moon.

    Islam began as something strange, and it shall return to being something strange, so give glad tidings to the strangers. [Muslim]

    These days we have high quality cameras (with zoom lenses) and we have the internet.

    Why can't those who declare the sighting of the moon take a photo of it and post it on an authoritative website - as proof. So that everyone in the world can see it has been sighted (by those who claimed to have sighted it) and there can be no argument; and also to reduce the likelihood of fitnah?
