EID AL-FITR on Tuesday or Wednesday

EID AL-FITR
TO BE
ON
?
There is some confusion because Saudi and other countries are ending today and celebrating tomorrow while Egypt, Maylaysia, Europe and North America are having one more day of fasting.
Our Islamic scholars in America over at ISNA tell us Wedneday.
Our Muslim Assocation in Minnesota tells us tomorrow.
Sigh...
I hate this part of Ramadan.

Salamualiakum, I am also distressed by the lack of unity. We are in Egypt and have Eid tomorrow. Eid Mubarak just the same.

Wa Alaykom Asalam Anonymous,

The various groups in MN did celebrate today, as they went with the Saudi officials. I went along with the Egyptian Al-Azhar and fasted today. So, tomorrow is my first day of Eid :)

Asalamlaykom Rayyan,

Thank you for coming by and please come again. You feel I'm a wonderful person, because you are one yourself :)

Eid Saeed!

Asalamalaykom Mona,

I will celebrate it with you, as will many parts of the world. But one ummah would be better of course.

Aslamalaykom Anonymous,

I tried to fix it. I think it's better now. Can you take a look? I don't read Arabic as well as you. JAK!
