Insh'Allah ......

and yeah, right brother.  Actually in this part of north America, spring is just as cool as winter in many other warmer lands.   As time goes by, days of fasting will move from cooler to cold for the next decade or so.  Insh'Allah.   How many slaves of The Almighty are destined to live through this decade-long cycle of spring & wintry fasting days is only known to HIM.   The most important aspect is, may HE grant us the good health and strength to derive the maximum blessings through our efforts in these months ..... and until the day we leave.  Ameen ya Rab.

To be honest, in all Islamic institutes located in the west, they're very particular about observing Eid-al-Fitr on the same day as in the Middle-East.  But they don't necessarily follow the commencement of the month of Ramadan on the same day.   Thus, Muslim communities in the west very often end up observing 29 fasts.    For e.g. this year, in ME Ramadan 1st was May 5 and Shawal 1st (Eid Fitr) on June 4.  That makes 30 fasts from May 5 to June 3.   But those who started on May 6th fell short by one fast.  It really shouldn't be that way.  I mean, missing a fast which is obligatory (as clearly spelt out in the Noble Quran) for the sake of a non-Quranic celebration is something I have a big problem with.

Insh'Allah.     The blessed month is gradually moving into the spring season.  Peak summer months are generally the hardest.   I thank Allah profusely for granting us the strength and perseverance to have successfully completed one entire cycle of summer fasts stretching over a decade.  Ameen ya Allah.

Bism'Allah and As-Salaam Alaikum everyone.   For your information and convenience, the tentative date for the start of Ramadan 2020 is April 26, if Allah wills.

We're fasting today.  Sister Zeynab is right.  Those places that are celebrating Eid al Fitr today, June 4, started on May 5 citing the moon for 1st Ramadan.  But our jurists here started late on May 6 and now they want to finish with those who started May 5.  I agree with you, this 29-day cycle is getting too common because of the miscalculation or plain lethargy of our jurists.

Exactly the same Sister.  My husband is fasting today stating as you mentioned. It seems our scholars here find nothing wrong in reducing the 30 days of Ramadan into 29.  They do that almost every year by starting late and then dropping the 30th fast.

That's right Sis.   I tell you what;   in those places where Ramadan 1st was observed on May 5 have announced Eid on June 4.   But we here began Ramadan on May 6.  If we observe 1st of Shawal today on June 4, we would have observed only 29 fasts.  So I am fasting today as my last fast of the blessed month in 2019.

Actually I already started fasting and then at six in the morning when I checked the internet I found out about the confusion.  So I'll just continue my last fast today, Insh'Allah.

What about you folks?

As the blessed month in 2019 comes to a close, our folks have started the usual confusion once again.  Some segments say fasting ends June 3 with Eid al fitr on June 4.  Some say last day of fasting is June 4 and Eid al Fitr June 5.

What about you guys?
