They are on the correct path and follow the hadith of prophet Mohammed صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ They don't follow Saudi Arabia or egypt for their comfort As per prophet Mohammed صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ open your fasting after sighting the moon and break your fasting after sighting the moon.
