Dear respected Shaykh, assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. What is the ruling of a person who began fasting in the month of Ramadan in one country and then he travelled to another country where the people began fasting a day earlier? ما حكم من بدأ الصوم في بلد ثم سافر إلى بلد قد سبقوهم بصيام يوم؟

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions. Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. As to what follows: In response to your question, we say:   If he fasts for twenty-nine then he has done what is incumbent upon him. However, if Eid is announced in that country when he has fasted twenty-eight days then he has to make up for the missing day after Eid. He has to follow the Eid of the people in the country that he has travelled to because the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Fasting (for the month of Ramadan) begins when the people start fasting, and Eid al-Fitr is  on the day that the people stop fasting.” [At-Tirmithi (697)]
