Here in Toronto, the Hilal Committee declared there were no verified reports of crescent sightings – so we will be celebrating Eid in Toronto on Wednesday, August 31, 2011, God willing. Across North America, Eid will be celebrated either on Tuesday (Aug 30) or Wednesday (Aug 31).
Ramadan Mubarak to all readers of this blog. In Toronto, Canada, we started fasting from August 1, 2011, as determined by the local Hilal Committee.
InshAllah, I will be back with new posts on August 7, 2011.
