they not see the moon the goverment force
them to fast by calender . i fast with arabs
please answer me if i'm right i'm a somalian

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.

We hope that you were correct for fasting
with the countries where the moon was
sighted because it is not correct to rely on
astronomic estimations in determining the
beginning or the end of fasting. Therefore,
this estimation should not be taken into
account, rather, what should be relied on is
the sighting with one's eyes or completing
the month of Sha'baan 30 days.

Indeed, we clarified that a Muslim who lives
in a country whose people rely on
astronomic estimations should rely in
starting fasting and breaking the fast on his
own sighting of the moon or the sighting of
the nearest country to him, especially that
the majority of the scholars are of
the view that if the moon is sighted in one
country all the people are obliged to fast.
Hence, it is more appropriate to act
according to the view of the majority of the
scholars .

Allah Knows best.
