Idiotic North American Muslims!
Eid mubarak to all SANE Muslims out there, the Eid has been announced in Mecca to be December 19th 2007. People are currently en route to perform the holiest of Islamic rituals, the Hajj, where millions will be at Mecca performing the religious pillar of Islam.
But the visionary Muslims of north America (Who no one in the world cares about) decided that the millions of people performing hajj, and the ENTIRE ISLAMIC WORLD is wrong, and that the Eid will be on the 21st! 2 days AFTER everyone else.
Shariah Board of America and Hilal Committee of Greater Chicago have announced that No Moon Sighted anywhere in North America so Zul-Qadh will complete its 30 days and Wednesday, December 12th, 2007 is the first day of Zul-Hajjah. Inshallah Eid-ul-Adha will be on Friday December 21st, 2007.

Not only are they ridiculing the millions in Mecca but also the Billions of Muslims around the world. My god, is there ANY greater disarray? Is there anything that spells out disorder between Muslims?!
It's not like this is Ramadan and you have to either fast tomorrow or have Eid tomorrow, this is 10 WHOLE DAYS AHEAD of the Eid. My god 10 days and we can't get our stuff together and declare Eid with the people performing the ritual!?
What were the Muslims in the so called Shura council thinking? Isn't the sighting or none sighting really irrelevant in this case? It's well known Fiqh fact that if people are travelling and they arrived to a country where they have already fasted they would fast with them? Fine, then you have 10 freakin DAYS to make up your mind if you're in doubt!
I'm sick of these tit-for-tat crap. I'm sick of Some Muslims claiming the religious and moral high-grounds. I'm SICK of people continuously finding something that differentiates them in matters that REQUIRE consolidated UNITY you morons! I will not shut up about it!
Every time I raise this issue, someone "Shuts me up" that they don't want any trouble. WHAT!!? I'm not shutting up and you freakin morons don't even know how to follow the people performing HAJJ how can you tell me what I should be doing in my house or if something is Halal or Haram!
What a bunch of lunatics!
Anyway, Eid mubarak to all, I WILL BE Celebrating it WITH THE MUSLIMS ... IN MECCA!
