I am a Sunni Muslim living in Japan, writing to ask you about the sighting of the new moon of Dhuâl-Hijjah, because the Muslims are disputing about the day of Eid.
Â My question here is should we celebrate Eid with Saudi Arabia or should we follow the closest (Muslim) country to us?
Praise be to Allaah. Â
It is sufficient for you to follow the sighting of the moon that has been proven in the land of the Two Holy Sanctuaries.
Â And Allaah knows best.
