Thanks Day I for the reciepe. Yes, "Sheera" is the heated water & sugar that is boured over the Baklava. For some reason, whenever I think of Baklava, it has to be with Pistashio. I guess not all?

Sherbet is the Turkish version indeed. Sheera then as well.

After looking at the baklava recepies I noticed that walnuts and sugar water are key ingredients that might make them different from some other baklavas. Certain kinds also have pistachio sprinkles on top or throughout (Gaziantep). Other kinds of baklava have the main flavor from honey instead of sugar water (Arabic?) Then there is the use of milk too (sutlu nuriye).

ok then two starts lol.  i dont understand why many people here started on wed. when the moon had already been spotted in makkah.  but does not make a big difference to me. i dont feel as one start is more right than the other.

the bosnian baklava is pretty much similar to the turkiya. the fast was good just thirsty was hot in chicago last couple of days.

 Baklava, favourite dessert. Is the Bosnian Baklava little different than the Turkish or Syrian one?

Well, the idea of Mecca as a center is great. However, i know that countries like Indonesia and way way east might sight the moon before the night or the crescent ,which stays for minutes after its birth, reaches Mecca. So what can they do? ignore the crescent and wait 7 hours for Mecca to sight it? Their day would have started already.

That is why I prefer the idea of multiple crescent spotting centers on vrious Islamic countreis that are administered by committees representing a collected group of scholars. Mecca can be the center of that network, and for announcements.

So you fasted Tuesday? How was your first day? Mine was fine especially that i was able to sleep till 11 am

I personally beleive that once Ramazaan starts in Makkah all muslims should begin fasting.  Like this year. It started on tuesday in Makkah. And here in the US i started fasting on Tuesday.

Yup. If they place observation points with committees that involves most of the Islamic countries, and these observation points should be scattered. If it observed the cresent in Indonesia, then it is Ramadan to all the Muslim world, if the crescent was born on Africa, some observation point should report it and again, all the Muslim world will adopt the next day as Ramadan.

The concept that each region sees his moon does not work with communication. We had that for a reason, as it was hard to tell the birth of the moon to all regions of the Muslim empire with the old communication methods.

i think they MUST make a system for observation that when the moon was sighted anywhere it must be reported to Saudi Arabia who will Announce the begining of Ramadan and all Muslim countries to follow.

the current system isn't working well specialy to muslims living in a non islamic country who are confused which to follow Saudi Arabia or countries of their orgin!!

they should make a united system for Ramdan moon sighting.
