Why do our commuity follow moon? did rusuallah did 30 fast in ramazaan can u prove me? why do we follow misri calendar

Did the Prophet (saws) fast 30 days in Ramadhan

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your comment: Why do our commuity follow moon? Why do we follow misri calendar???

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 189:They ask you (O Prophet) about the phases of the moon. Tell them, These are signs for the people to reckon dates, and fix the periods for Hajj.

 

The moon has always been used in Islam to determine the number of days in a calendar month, as was the tradition of the Messenger of Allah (saws). The Bohras follow a calendar and for some reason call it the Egyptian Calendar, whereas in the whole of Egypt the believers start and end their months by sighting the moon! Allah Alone knows best how and why they derived this name and the method to calculate their dates of the month!!!

 


The believers follow the moon to reckon their dates because it is the command of Allah and the practice of the Messenger of Allah (saws). The Bohras follow the misri calendar maybe because it is convenient and easy; but regretfully it is without the guidance or authority of Allah and His Messenger (saws)!

 

Your comment: Did rusuallah did 30 fast in ramazaan can u prove me.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 185 (part): Therefore from now on, whosoever witness it (the month of Ramadan), it is obligatory on him to fast the whole month.

 

It is a scientific fact that the exact duration of the rotation of the moon around the earth is not 30 days exact, but it is a little short of it. Thus, there are some months of 29 days in Islam, and some months of 30 days; depending on the sighting of the moon. It would thus be illogical and unscientific if one was to fix the days of a particular month to 30 days, irrespective of the sighting of the moon. The Messenger of Allah (saws) himself fasted some years 29 days in Ramadan, and in other years 30 days. To fix the number of days in any particular Islamic month is an innovation and against the guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws).

 

Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (saws) instructed: "Fast after you have seen it [the new crescent] and end the fast [at the end of the month] when you see it. If it is hidden from you, then wait until the thirty days of Sha'ban have passed."

 

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "When you see the crescent (of the month of Ramadan), start fasting, and when you see the crescent (of the month of Shawwal), stop fasting; and if the sky is overcast (and you can't see it) then regard the month of Ramadan as of 30 days."

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
