Salam,
this year I fasted with my masjid (on Wed) instead of (Tues). The majority of the people that go to my masjid follows different scholars. And they are celebrating eid on Friday. Is it ok if I go along with my masjid or should I celebrate Eid on Thursday?

Answer:

Fasting on Thursday is invalid, for it marks the first day of the Eid if you emulate the late Sayyed Fadlullah (ra). Moreover, you ought to make up for (refast) the day you missed, which is Tuesday, as it marked the beginning of the month of Ramadan.
