Should I Fast after Eid if I have completed only 28 and it is eid in another city


I was in another city and Ramadan started a day late from my hometown. Now I’m in my hometown and it’s EID here. But I have completed only 28 fasts. Should I Fast after Eid or not?


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

As you were out of town and the month of Ramadhan started and once you are back to your hometown it is Eid and you did not miss the fast intentionally, thus, you can celebrate Eid in your hometown. But as fasting has to be at least 29 days, so you will have to do Qadha for one fast later as you had fasted for 28 days.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
