One's Duty on Occasions Where marji‘s Differ in Relation to the Announcement of ‘Id al-Fitr

Q: Assuming differences arise amongst the religious authorities with respect to the affirmation of ‘Id al-Fitr, what is one’s duty? Ought each follower to refer to his/her own marja‘?

A: Following one’s marji‘ has no role in relation to the new moon’s affirmation; rather, assuming one acquires certainty, with respect to the new moon, by means of a marji‘s announcement then one ought to break one’s fast on that day. Assuming one has doubt (post-announcement) in relation to the matter, then he/she must fast on that day.
