Rules for Ramadan

to observe Fasting and Eid etc. in accordance to Saudi Arab?

الاستفتاء

Assalam O Alaikum jinab Mufti Sahib! Please explain to the questioner about
1. siting of the new moon.
2. Is it possible or not to observe Fasting and Eid etc. in accordance to Saudi Arab?
3. On which basis do Saudi Arab people observe Fasting? Do they site the new moon and observe Fasting or as per the calender?
Sail ko Ahadis ki roshni me tafseel k sath jald az jald agah karein q k Ramazan mubarak qareeb he.
Wassalam aap ki tawajho ka talabgar.

الجواب حامدا و مصلیا

If the new moon is not sighted in the area of the questioner, or in the close neighborhood, or anywhere in the whole of Pakistan, declaring the commencement of Ramadhan etc. merely upon the announcement of Saudi Arabia, without any Shar’i evidence is not correct to observe Fasting/Eid etc. and should refrain from doing so. As for the basis of deciding in Saudi Arabia, this could be known by referring to them.
