Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states: “As far as I know Saudi Arabia is following the age-old practice of sighting the new moon in determining the date of ‘Eid Al-Adha; `Eid Al-Adha is celebrated on the tenth of Dhul Hijjah, and they base it on the sighting of the new moon; they have arrangements throughout the kingdom to gather the reports of the sightings; these sighting are verified and then a decision is made by the qadi (supreme judge) accordingly. It is best that we do not become overly obsessed with such minutia in religion; let us instead focus on higher priorities facing the ummah.”
