Every year, for the month of Ramadan and Shawwal, an intense debate gets underway regarding the sighting of moon. Some argue to have a national sighting, while some propose going along with Saudi and gulf countries. While some follow the opinion of global sighting.
Since, the fundamental and important Hukm of fasting is connected with moon sighting, thus this topic is of great importance.
Today's talk will discuss how RasulAllahﷺ addressed this matter, how classical scholars viewed it and whether nationalism can even be a basis for rejecting witnesses? And more importantly, how can this issue practically get resolved?
