    Many thanks.
    Naeem Afzal, you have posted many times, simply including a few short words and then asking us if they are correct. Whilst it is possible to tell you if something is grammatically correct, it is impossible for us to say whether or not it's actually what you wanted to say. With this post, for example, you could have worded it like this:

    Hello everyone

    If I want to tell my friend that I have heard that someone has seen the Eid moon, can I say "The Eid moon has sighted"?



    Can you see how some context is helpful for us?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
