Thoughts on Eid

What's going on in Jordanian blogospher are really funny, People don't understand the basic of Why do we announce Eid or Ramadan and they still nagging why we do follow Saudi Arabia in Pilgrimage and we don't do that in Ramadan ..

Ok, Let me unleash my wisdom and explain some facts to you guys

First
In Islam we do fast when we see the moon in it's lunar shape (Helal) this is what every country have to do, regardless of any neighbour country, If you see the Helal you do fast else you don't and if you see it you celebrate the eid else you don't.
Again we do fast based on moon shapes NOT based on any country or anyone opinion, this is the norm of Hijri Calendar.

Second
Why we do follow Saudi Arabia in Pilgrimage (Thu Al-Heja Month) and not in other months?
Basically because we have to follow their time zone just because we are going to Mecca and Mecca aren't coming to us :D
If you are flying to the state now you will have to synchronize your time based on their time not your time and this because YOU are going to that country.

The only note is that all Hijri calendar get synchronized in Pilgrimage month (Thu Al-Hija) so all of them have same day of 1 of the month and this happen only in this month not the ones before nor after.


Many of you aren't aware in the fact that Saudi Arabia did mistake before two years and they had to pay ...... (Kafara) for their mistake in monitoring the moon shapes and this year many of the daily newspaper that they fall in same mistake this year also) but now the mistake isn't fixable because they cannot fast more than 30 days as Ramadan month can't be 31 days and today is the 30th of Ramadan in Saudi Arabia.

but Khalida still wondering...

I think we should follow them for everything else? why does each country search for its own Hilal? or is this applicable only for ramadan and the rest of the year, we follow KSA??



We do search for our own Lunar shape of the moon because it can be lunar in some parts in the world while it has other shapes in the other parts and YES this is applicable for all months except the the Pilgrimage month (Thu Al-Hija) just for the sake of Pilgrimage synchronizations and because people are travelling to Mecca, HOWEVER it is not a must to synchronize our time in Pilgrimage month but we have to do Pilgrimage according to their time and date not ours.

It might be hard to get it just because we aren't used to use Hijri Calendar, we are more used to Georgian calendar but we still should know the basics of Hijri Calendar.

Rules of war (in a nutshell)

https://youtu.be/HwpzzAefx9M Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
