Moon Sighting or Moon Fighting?

by Salman Hameed

Last last year, I had conversation with Akif Khan of Rationalist Society of Pakistan on the topic of lunar calendar controversies amongst Muslims in some countries (not in all places, as some do use calculations. I think Turkey is one of those countries). In any case here is the conversation (yes, it goes for half-an-hour). This is timely as we have Eid here tomorrow. So along with this video, Eid Mubarak!

And much thanks to Akif Khan and Pakistani rationalists.

Muslim community use calculations for prayer timings so there does not seem to be an issue with the calculation method for predicting religious events.
