Is it permissible to begin the Sawm (fasting) in a village far from the capital based on the moon-sighting in the capital or is it obligatory to wait for a moon-sighting in my village?
(Part No. 10; Page No. 116)
If the sighting of the crescent is confirmed in the capital, the people in the village you mentioned can depend on that moon-sighting and begin observing the Sawm with the Muslims.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
