If Allah has 'created' the New Moon, then by only 'seeing' it one or two days later is not agreeing with Allah but following man-made rules.


2:189 (Self-control is a life-long commitment extending beyond the month of Ramadhan.) They ask you (O Messenger) about the phases of the Moon. Say, “They are calendars to help mankind determine certain seasons such as Hajj.” But know that righteousness can never be achieved by entering the System through the back door of ritualism. Only he who lives an upright life attains it. Enter the Divinely ordained Way of Life straightforward as you must enter houses through their gates. Live upright so that you may reap a rich harvest. [2:138, 2:177, 2:208. There is no such thing as a part-time Muslim]

6:96 He is the Cleaver of the daybreak. He has appointed the night for stillness, (rest and tranquillity) and the sun and the moon to run their well-calculated courses. They become means of calculating time for you (10:5). Such is the Design of the All-Powerful, the All-Knowing.

10:5 He it is, Who appointed the sun as a splendid glow, and the moon as a cool light. He appointed stages for the moon, in due measure. You make your calculations and calendars accordingly. God has created the Universe as the Absolute Reality and for a Purpose. God explains His verses for those who wish to learn. [The Universe is neither a dream as the ancient Hindu philosopher Manu preached, nor a reflection of the world of ideas as Plato thought. 6:97, 17:12]

14:33 And made the sun and the moon, both of them constant on their courses - And committed the night and the day to serve you.

55:5 The sun and the moon run by a mathematical design. [Such are the changeless Divine Laws]

3:189 Unto God belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth. And God, having Power over all things and events, has appointed Laws in due measure. [10:4, 34:3-4, 53:31]
3:190 Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men and women who use their understanding.
3:191 (Such men and women of understanding keep reflecting upon how God’s Laws operate in the Universe.) Standing, sitting, and reclining, they reflect upon the wonders of creation in the heavens and the earth, saying, "Our Lord! You have not created all this without Purpose. Glory to You! (High above You are from creating anything in vain.) Save us, then, from (being negligent in attaining knowledge and thus from) the doom of the Fire.”
[When humans harness the forces of Nature and use them for the common good of all, they move away from Hell, rightfully hoping to achieve Paradise in both lives. 13:17, 45:13-14]
