Methods of Proving the Arrival of the Month

Q: Assuming a number of just people bear testimony to the fact that two just people have in fact witnessed the (new) moon, will the arrival of the months of Ramadan or Shawwal be subsequently proved?

A: No, one must be informed directly by the two just people (who have observed the new moon) themselves. Intermediary reports of the moon’s observation are not sufficient save on occasions where it leads to one’s acquiring certainty in relation to the moon’s appearance.
