@ Nabeel ( Dubai) Its not about One universal date.... its about lunar positioning.
@ Radwan (Ca) In North America 1st of Ramadan was on 2nd Sept... InshAllah if we have 30 Rodas.. then Eid will be on 2nd Oct .. if not then on 1st Oct.

In Australia the date for eid is completely screwed up. Apparantly the Turkish community is doing it a day early, and the other suburbs are doing it at different times too!

I think that in predominantly white countries, eid's date is debated. We should just have one date for it, instead of having separate communities and countries having it on different days. Oh well, EID MUBARAK!

In Malaysia and Indonesia, possibly Eid Mubarak will fall tomorrow, October 1st 2008, depending on whether the new moon ("Hilal") will be sighted this evening or not... Wonder when is Eid celebrated in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia? Anyone knows when?
