Answer:

Eid on different days

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

The Muslim ummah will InshaAllah one day come to a common consensus to abide by a Islamic calendar wherein all dates will be the same for the full planet. Until that happens the Muslims are required to join the majority of the area that they are living in when celebrating the Eids etc., so that no fitnah or contradiction is caused.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is only ones. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

Your brothers and well wishers in Islam,
