Next question is from a person who usually works and or he stays, usually stays in Saudi Arabia. And the last Ramadan, he started his fast in Saudi Arabia. and Saudi Arabia has a difference of two days, or it did last year anyway, from India, which is his hometown, so he came to his hometown. And by the time he'd reached he'd already fasted two days in Saudi Arabia. He wants to know, does he have to finish 30 days and then be left with the two days in his hometown? Which other people around him is still fasting? Should he consider this to be the point of reference or Saudi Arabia to be the point of reference? I think it's the question of cuando dito blogspot. masala Salam is mentioned in

00:00:49--> 00:00:50

the hadith of

00:00:51--> 00:01:33

three MIDI in the book of fasting palette number 697. The Prophet said, start your fast with the people who are starting the fast means we live in a country or live in a place. If those people are faster, you should fast and break your fast with the people around you when they bring the fast. So if you live in Saudi Arabia, you should start as fast with the people of Saudi Arabia. If in between in a man, if he goes back to his original home in India, then you should fast till the time his people are fasting. And I'm aware that many times the difference of a couple of days. So if he starts his first two days earlier, and he goes to India, by the time he finishes his 31st, the

00:01:33--> 00:02:17

people of India may yet have one or two fast left. But yet he has to continue fasting is the people of India, even though it exceeds more than 30 days, it may be 31. Sometimes I do this, it says that fast with the people who are fasting around you and break the fast with the people who are breaking the first round. But if it is or vice versa, if we started the first in India two days late, and then comes to Saudi Arabia, then maybe he'll first 28 days. In this case, he has to start with the people of India and with the people of Saudi Arabia. And he cannot fast on the today because it is haram. But after that he has to at least fast one more day because in any lunar month is 29 days. So

00:02:17--> 00:02:26

if he should at least pass additional one or two days to make up for 29 or 30 days, so that it doesn't mean that he has fasted less than the minimum requirement.
