Afro, this article had me cracking up (can I have Monday off? no, tuesday. lol)


When is Eid 2014? It could be Monday or Tuesday, it might be Sunday …

Eid al-Fitr – the feast at the end of Ramadan – begins with the sighting of the new moon. But can you use a telescope, or just the naked eye? And what if it's cloudy?

Serious question: when is Eid? There's a joking-but-actually-quite-accurate pie chart that breaks down when you know the month of Ramadan is over. The largest chunk suggests: "just keep fasting until phone explodes with Eid texts". It's not bad advice.

The Islamic calendar is lunar, which is why the timing of Ramadan is not a fixed thing, and consequently why Eid wanders a bit. In the old days, the patriarch returned from the mosque one evening around 29 or 30 days into the month to say: "Look lively – it's Eid tomorrow." I was brought up with the understanding that when the new moon is sighted in Saudi Arabia (signalling the start of the month of Shawwal), it's time for Eid. But of course, as with all things around religion, there are shades of grey. Some scholars, for example, argue that the moon must be seen with the naked eye, while others say it is just as valid if seen through the lens of a telescope. There are some who say an astronomical calculation is good enough, and people who argue this is a fallacy.

Geography matters too, which explains why your cousins in Birmingham sometimes celebrate Eid a day before or after you do in London. Then there is weather to contend with: if you're an adherent of the "naked eye moon sighting system", what happens on a cloudy night?

Is it confusing? A little. Taking time off work can become a tricky little adventure with the HR department – "Can I have Monday off, please? No, make it Tuesday. Nope, Monday!" – something that might be a stumbling block for Harrow MP Bob Blackman in his quest to make Eid (and Diwali) public holidays. We'll never have an official countdown with "x shopping days until Eid" but that's OK. Part of the joy of Eid is the thrill of not knowing precisely when it's coming.

Sometimes, it really is as simple as waiting for the floods of celebratory calls. Eid Mubarak!
