How is Eid Al Adha determined or calculated?

Eid Al Adha usually comes two months and 10 days later after Eid al Fitr, but there are some differences in determining the exact day. It has been a common question to ask how is Eid Al Adha determined. It is just same as like Prophet Muhammad Salallahu’Alaihi Wassalam in how determined and how calculated the Eid. It has to be based on moon sighting. Thus, it is okay to have differences in determining the days of Eid whether it is Al Fitr or Al Adha.

There have been a lot of Muslims Scholars like Ibn Abbas that allowed countries to have a different day, but not the way to determine. It has to be based on moon sighting. The calculation in determining the day is called as Hisab. There is also debate on it. Some people say that the truest way to calculate Eid is moon sighting, and it is easy.
Some countries also apply other ways to determine by following the Hajj schedules. If the Hajj Jama’ah does the Wuquf, then some South East Asian does fasting, but again the main way to determine is still by moon sighting.Then, what if it’s different?

There is no mistake to see the differences. Every country has different moon sighting. In some Arab countries, there might be today to have Eid Al Adha, in other sides might be tomorrow to have the Eid. It is just because of the difference on moon sighting. Just be strict and follow on Prophet Muhammad Salallahu’Alaihi Wassalam in how determined and how calculated the Eid.

Islam allows differences on determining, just be sure that you already have followed the truest way in doing Eid Al Adha, by following the Sunnah like doing fasting before the day and sacrificing the animals. You can also do the sacrificing animal within consecutive three days depending on how many animals you would sacrifice.
