The following two advices will help to maintain the momentum of Ramadhān and safeguard us from wasting the remaining precious moments of Ramadhān, due to the excitement of the advent of 'Īd.

  1. On the 29th of Ramadhān remain occupied in devotions to Allāh ta'ālā, as the precious moments are slipping away quickly. Do not endeavour to find out before Maghrib whether the moon has been sighted or not.
  2. If however you learn before Maghrib that the moon has been sighted, then do not inform others until after Maghrib so that they are not distracted and become negligent. Keep yourself engaged in 'ibādah (worship), as for you it is still Ramadhān until Maghrib.
