Salam All, I hope your Ramadan fastings are going good. Does any one have idea about when does Ramadan 2015 end ? I was going through the internet and found following page which declares end of Ramadan based on calculations. Eid al-Fitr 2015 English - http://www.makkahcalendar.org/en/eid-al-fitr/ Eid al-Fitr 2015 French - http://www.makkahcalendar.org/fr/aid-el-fitr/ The site also provided live sighting reports during Ramadan and they also say that they will cover sighting for Eid 2015 as well. This is quite interesting. Any thoughts on the announcement based on the predicted visibility of the new moon ? Are calculations allowed to determine the start date ? - Aman
Asalaamu Alaykum Inshallah all is well, It has been confirmed that the night of the 16th of october is the start of the blessed month of dhul hijjah, and so 1st day of dhul hijjah is on wednesday. the 1st 10 days of this month have been highlighted for great reward. The prophet pbuh has said "there are no 10 days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these 10 days" The sahaba asked "not even jihad" and the prophet replied, "not even jihaad unless a man goes out for jihad with all his wealth and does not come back with anything!" (bukhari) This is an amazing opportunity for us to stack up the good deeds. Its recommended to fast on these days...so fast. Give charity, feed the poor, visit the sick, increase your ibadah! Dates again 1st dhul hijjah, wed 17th oct Yaum al Arafah, thurs 25th oct Eid ul Adha, Fri 26th oct Please also bear in mind all those who wish to offer the slaughter should refrain from cutting hair and nails during from the start of dhul hijjah until the slaughter is done on Eid. So do so now if you need inshallah. May Allah accept your efforts. Remember me in your dua
Saracen21stC posted a topic in Ramadan, Eids, Hajj seasonsRuling on offering congratulations on the occasion of Eid, and shaking hands and embracing after the prayer What is the ruling on offering congratulations on the occasion of Eid? What is the ruling on shaking hands and embracing after the Eid prayer?. Praise be to Allaah. It was narrated that that Sahaabah (may Allaah be pleased with them) used to congratulate one another on the occasion of Eid by saying Taqabbal Allaahu minna wa minkum (May Allaah accept (this worship) from us and from you). It was narrated that Jubayr ibn Nufayr said: When the companions of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) met one another on the day of Eid, they would say to one another: “Taqabbal Allaahu minna wa mink (May Allaah accept (this worship) from us and from you).” Al-Haafiz said: Its isnaad is hasan. Imam Ahmad (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: There is nothing wrong with one man saying to another on the day of Eid: Taqabbal Allaahu minna wa mink (May Allaah accept (this worship) from us and from you). This was narrated by Ibn Qudaamah in al-Mughni. Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah was asked in al-Fataawa al-Kubra (2/228): Does the common Eid greeting that is on people’s lips – “Eid Mubaarak” etc – have any basis in sharee’ah or not? If there is a basis for that in sharee’ah, what should we say? He replied: With regard to the greeting on the day of Eid, which people say to one another when meeting after the prayer, “Taqabbal Allaahu minna wa minkum wa ahaalahu Allaah ‘alayka (May Allaah accept (this worship) from us and from you and may you live to see another Eid)” etc, this was narrated from a number of the Sahaabah who used to do that and allow others to do so too, and from the Imams such as Imam Ahmad. But Ahmad said: I do not initiate this greeting with anyone. But if someone greets me in this manner I return his greeting. That is because returning a greeting is obligatory, but initiating this greeting is not a Sunnah that is enjoined, but neither is it forbidden. The one who does it has an example and the one who does not do it also has an example. And Allaah knows best. Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen was asked: What is the ruling on offering Eid greetings and is there a particular wording to be used? He replied: It is permissible to offer greetings and congratulations on Eid, and there is no specific greeting. Rather the greetings that people customarily use are permissible so long as no sin is involved. He also said: Some of the Sahaabah offered greetings and congratulations on the occasion of Eid. Even if we assume that they did not do that, it has now become something customary that people are used to doing, congratulating one another on the occasion of Eid and on completing the fast and qiyaam. And he was asked: what is the ruling on shaking hands, embracing and congratulating one another after the Eid prayer? He replied: There is nothing wrong with these things, because people do not do these things as acts of worship intended to draw them closer to Allaah, rather they do them because they are customary, and to honour and show respect to one another. So long as there is nothing in sharee’ah to indicate that a custom is forbidden, then the basic principle is that it is permissible. Majmoo’ Fataawa Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 16/208-210.

Saracen21stC posted a topic in Ramadan, Eids, Hajj seasonsIs giving gifts on Eid an innovation (bid‘ah)? Is it permissible to give my family members some gifts on Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr, and to do that every year, or is it an innovation (bid‘ah)? Praise be to Allah. There is nothing wrong with giving gifts on Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha to family and relatives, because these are days of joy and happiness on which it is mustahabb to uphold ties, show kindness, and eat and drink plenty. This is not bid‘ah; rather it is something that is permissible and a good custom that is one of the symbols of Eid. Hence it is not allowed to give gifts and express joy and happiness on innovated occasions on which it is not prescribed to celebrate, such as New Year, the Mawlid (Prophet’s birthday) and the fifteenth of Sha‘baan (an-nusf min Sha‘baan), because this makes them like Eids. Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) said: On this Eid people also exchange gifts, i.e., they make food and invite one another to come and eat, and they get together and celebrate. There is nothing wrong with this custom because these are days of Eid. When Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) entered the house of the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and found with him two young girls who were singing on the days of Eid, he rebuked them, but the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Let them be.” And he did not say it because they were young girls. Rather he said: “Let them be, for these are the days of Eid.” This indicates that Islam, with its tolerant and easy-going attitude, allows people to express joy and happiness on the days of Eid. End quote from Majmoo‘ Fataawa Ibn Uthaymeen, 16/276 And he (may Allah have mercy on him) said: It is well known that there are no festivals in Islam except those which are proven in sharee‘ah, namely Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Ahda, and Friday which is the weekly “Eid”. As for the fifteenth of Sha‘baan (an-nusf min Sha‘baan), there is no proof in Islam is that it is an Eid. If it is taken as an occasion on which charity is distributed or gifts are given to neighbours, then this is taking it as an Eid. End quote from Fataawa Noor ‘ala ad-Darb And he said concerning Mother’s Day: Once this is understood, it is not permissible, on the occasion mentioned in your question, which is called Mother’s Day, to introduce any of the symbols of Eid on this day, such as expressing joy and happiness, giving gifts, and so on. End quote from Majmoo‘ Fataawa ash-Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 2/301 And Allah knows best. Islam Q&A Source: http://islamqa.info/en/ref/130948
