Qadhi announcing Eid

Q: If a person is going on jamaat to an Arab country for ramadan and eid, and in that country they use scientific methods to determine the date of eid without actually seeing the moon, should one celebrate eid with them? If not, should one look for the moon and if not seen, fast on their eid and celebrate eid the next day?


A: If the qadhi has announced the Eid in the Islamic country then you should follow their announcement.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
