  • Fasting on the 9th of Dhul Hijjah

    Asalaamalaykum folks.

    When exactly is the 9th of Dhul Hijja?

    I ask because on one Islamic channel ('Islam Channel'), it displayed today as being the 2nd of Dhul Hijjah, and on another ('Noor TV', brillo version), it said the 1st. I want to make sure my fast on the 9th will be on the correct day, insha'Allah.

    I'm confuddled.

    Thanks.

        Just to mention; the local Masjid has declared Eid to be on Monday the 12th of August, but looking at sources on the net, it seems the Saudis and other ME countries have said it'll be on Sunday the 11th.

        As you can see, it puts quite a few of us in a bit of a dilemma. No doubt there'll be some in the UK celebrating on the 11th, and some fasting on that day (since it'll still be the 9th of Dhul Hijjah according to them). And as we know, fasting on Eid is haram.

        This is how messed up the Muslims in Britain are, especially those living in the same city or street and deciding to celebrate on different days.

        Idiotic behaviour of the highest kind. No wonder the non-Muslims are confused when they ask 'How come your colleague is celebrating on one day, and you on the other?'

          You do this every year under different accounts.

          Don't project your own insecurities onto everyone else.
