Eid-ul-Fitr 2013 - What day did you celebrate Eid?

Eid-ul-Fitr 2013 - What day did you celebrate Eid?

After a very controversial end to Ramadan 2013 the date for Eid-ul-Fitr has been at the heart of most discussions in Muslim households across the world this year. Discussions with friends, families and colleagues have been never ending; so we've decided to get closer in finding out how and why some of us celebrated Eid on the days that we did.

How did we really decide on choosing the day for Eid? Did we really rely upon the sighting of the new moon or were there other factors involved which played a bigger part in the decisions we've made?

We have compiled a simple survey which will take you less than 15 seconds to complete with just 6 questions to answer. Please complete this survey as honestly as you can; after completing the survey you will be able to see a collective summary of how others have answered in comparison to you.

We will soon collate all the answers from the survey and publish the results by next month with a detailed review and an in-depth analysis to your answers.

All the answers to the six questions will be analysed individually to see how each answer has lead to the choices some of us have made. The results are already very fascinating and thought provoking to say the least!

Please share this survey widely with your friends, family and colleagues. The more people we have taking part in this survey the better we will be able to understand and analyse the results.
