Sighting the moon

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Eid-ul-adha is celebrated according to moon sighting of the particular country or according to Saudi Arabia? If it’s different then how should we celebrate them?


A: You will celebrate the eid according to the sighting of your area as the ulama and the righteous people of your area have accepted the sighing. I suggest that you move with that.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
