When is Ramadan?

Assalaam alaykum,

Please listen to this lecture (with slides) by Al-Hajj Abu Ja'far Al-Hanbali, in which he discusses how the beginning and end of Ramadan, and every other month of our lunar calendar, are determined according to the Qur'an, the Sunnah, the First Three Generations and the fuqaha that have followed since. The various fallacies that come up every year regarding moon sighting, such as the assertion that it can't be seen in the UK, that we don't have to bother looking for it because of modern science, that we should follow Saudi Arabia because that's where Islam began, and so on and so forth, are clearly dealt with, and with Allah alone is every success.
