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?

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.

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.

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.

Spot on brother.  I second you on that to the fullest.  This is exactly what keeps happening here, year after year.   Little effort to start Ramadan on time but in a rush to end it with those who started earlier  ....... trying to grab the cake and eat it too.  They may think that missing one fast is a trifle.  In the Sight of Allah it maybe quite a serious lapse because it's something they could have avoided if they were more careful.
