Question

I am fasting with a country that preceded Saudi (in fasting), so should I end the fasting with the country am fasting with or with Saudi, knowing that I will be staying there (i.e. in that other country) till after Eed?

Answer

At present you are following Saudi, so if they finish their fasting, you finish alongside them; but if they (i.e. that other country) complete thirty days and you are about to reach thirty one days, what is the ruling on ( this)? Allaah did not (legislate) that we fast thirty-one days, rather we either fast thirty days or twenty-nine days based on the sighting of the crescent. Therefore, some of the scholars say that you should break the fasting in secret when it reaches thirty days.
