It is also known to everyone that there exists the possibility of sighting the crescent in other regions, a day prior or a day after the sighting of the crescent in Makkah. Hence, the ninth day of Dhul Hijjah in Makkah could correspond with either the eighth or tenth day of Dhul Hijjah in other regions. Accordingly, if fasting was to be observed based on the observance of the day of Arafah in Makkah, that could be for those who sighted the crescent the previous day, the tenth day of Dhul Hijjah, which is the day of Eid, on which fasting is Haram.
