ISNA Discards its Calculated Date
ISNA Fiqh Council Chairman, Dr. Siddiqi called his own
Islamic Society of Orange County from Makkah that it should
discard Fiqh Council announced date of December 31, 2006 for Eid
al-Adha in North America. Instead, they should follow Saudi Haj
date and pray Eid al-Adha on December 30.
Most of ISNA Fiqh Council members also prayed Eid al-Adha in N.
America on Saturday, Dec. 30. It shows how much they
believe in their own calculated dates. They tell Muslims
their calculated dates are correct by the Qur'an and the Sunnah.
But they abandon them for totally incorrect Saudi dates.
Muslims in N. America celebrated Eid al-Adha on three days
according to their choice: Saudi Haj date (Saturday), Sighted
moon in N. America, ISNA calculated date (Sunday) and locally
sighted moon (Monday).
