Shaykh Zayd Al-Wassaabee was asked:


“Should we follow Saudi in fasting the month of Ramadaan knowing that there is a lot of differences that are found between the masaajids. Perhaps you might find in a household different people finding on different days, some fasting and some not fasting. So what is the ruling on this?”


“The land that you are in, if there is an organization or Islaamic establishment that unites and get together, and are able to see the moon as it enters for the month of Ramadaan, then you should stay and fast with them. However if there is not found in your country a strong Islaamic organization to do so, then you should look to the nearest Islaamic country to you and you should fast with them.”
