Anonymous asked: can you explain why is eid on tuesday if the moon was seen all over the globe
The moon was not seen all over the globe. Here is a website with charts of moon visibility on Sunday and Monday along with a list of countries and organizations who have declared Eid to be either on Monday or Tuesday. Most of the countries celebrating on Monday have said they are following moon sighting reports from Saudi and South Africa, all the reports for Tuesday are of those celebrating Eid based on the lack of a local sighting of the moon, hence Eid falling on Tuesday for them.
For many people, the sighting of the moon in one part of the world does not apply to other parts of the world.
