Question

Dear i have been in india for two months. so
i do not know that much about that country.
when i asked about Ramadan, i have been
told it is on the 12th of Sep, it is alreadt
determined, so my question is: do i have to
follow that?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

What should religiously be taken into
account in determining the beginning of the
month of Ramadan is two things: sighting the
moon of Ramadan or completing the month
of Sha'baan 30 days. However, astronomic
calculations are not an acceptable means in
determining the beginning of the month.
Therefore, if the people of this country are
not keen to sight the moon and rely on
astronomic calculations in determining the
beginning of the month, then you should not
follow what they say.

If there is a group of Muslims who are keen
to sight the moon, then fast with them, and
if you can sight the moon yourself, then do
so. However, if you do not see it, and no
other Muslim person sees it, then you should
complete Sha'baan 30 days.

Allah Knows best.
