Unlike Eid, Fasting Are we still?

This question deserves first proposed several years in Indonesia this common calendar 1 Shawwal difference between the government and several Islamic organizations.

Who is the person who does not crave equality and solidarity in the conduct of worship shaum, especially in starting shaum or when Eid arrives. But equally we have to realize that the initial determination was in Ramadan, or Eid al-Fitr is still there is a difference. Accordingly, we understand if the difference is sunnatullah.

Therefore, such differences must not lead to disaster. Instead it made all the accessories that adorn the living together in a frame ukhuwah Islamiah (Islamic brotherhood). Just how we make it happen in the maturity of thinking and acting.

Allah Almighty warned in the Qur'an, "And do not follow what you do not have knowledge of it: behold, hearing, sight, and hearts, all that will be held accountable." (Surah Al-Israa: 36)

In the face of disagreement, the first step that must be taken under that paragraph is to enrich themselves with knowledge, in particular the setting of the beginning of the month of Ramadan and Shawwal according to ability. After that, determine the maturity to address the differences, as far as the differences that have the same solid foundation. Finally, Believe who we view and do not have the slightest doubt that the decision has been taken.

If we doubt whether it has been entered on 1 Shawwal (Eid) or not, then we should break the fast because it is forbidden to fast on the day of the doubt.

Ammar bin Yasir R.A. said, "Who fasted on the dubious, it really has been lawlessness" (Abu Daud, Tirmidhi and Nasa'i).

If others have berlebaran while we believe that the day was not yet time for Eid, we believe that Eid is tomorrow according to the calendar which we believe to be true, then we must continue fasting because we do not include people who are hesitant.

But if in doubt, then we should break the fast as described in the above hadith.

In conclusion, we have to remain abstinent if we believe widths, although others have not already had widths.
