Ruling if the beginning of the month of Shawwaal was not known until Zawaal on the `Eed Day?

Question 6: What is the ruling if the beginning of the month of Shawwaal was not known until afternoon on the Eed (feast) Day?

Answer: If people have not known the beginning of the Eed (feast) until after the afternoon, they are to break the fast for that day and offer Eed (feast) Salaah (Prayer) in the morning of the following day. When the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was informed of the appearance of the crescent at the end of the day that was counted as the last day of Ramadaan, he ordered people to break their fast of that day and to come out to celebrate their Eed (feast) in the following day. Recorded by Ahmad, Aboo Daawood Al-Daaraqootnee  read more here.
