  2. dear sir Hasni,
    You have mentionedpromptly that the moon sighted in country (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) on Thursday. Rather one should be precise while speaking knowledgeable matters and particularly that knowledge is concerned with religious issues. Kindly verify the news itself and cite its source. May Allah Guide you and the Muslims around the Globe.
