“The criterion is the Shariah. Any movement acting in violation of the Shariah is Baatil.”
[Note: This article is relevant to the UK and other countries where many people based their Eid on the 22 sightings in South Africa which supposedly fulfilled the Shariah requirement for declaring Eid.]
DUE TO THE INTENSE CONTROVERSY AND UNCERTAINTY AROUND THE DUBIOUS ‘SIGHTING’ OF THE EID HILAAL, IT IS BEST TO KEEP ONE FAST AS QADHA. THERE IS NO HARM IN FASTING A DAY, BUT THERE IS GREAT HARM IN HAVING FASTED ONE DAY LESS.
IT APPEARS THAT A MASSIVE ERROR WAS CAUSED BY THE NNB JAMIAT WITH ITS BOGUS FRONT PAPER BODY UUCSA, HENCE REVEREND ABRAHAM BHAM VERY IRRESPONSIBLY ANNOUNCED THAT THE SIGHTING OF THE HILAAL WAS CONFIRMED. INSHA-ALLAH, WE SHALL PUBLISH A DETAILED EXPLANATION REGARDING THE HILAAL DEBACLE CREATED BY THE NNB JAMIAT WITH ITS BOGUS UUCSA.
