Eid prayer is an optional prayer he may do it or leave it.

Note that he even can pray it later (alone) as qada'. I've read that some scholars accept it even one day later others say it must be performed before noon of the Eid day.

Praying Eid or leaving it has no impact on the validity of fast or the acceptance of it. What is necessary to complete the fast is to pay the zakat al-fitr or sadqah of fitr. This a mandatory act on each Muslim, each Muslim must pay it for each person he is in charge of unless he can't afford to survive that day if paying it. And it must be paid or at least leave his hands before the Imam starts the prayer! One could pay it during Ramadan however delaying it until the night before the Eid is the most recommended.

  • Things changed for me this Eid, with no money and I took loan to do my kids shopping, should I have paid fitrna with loaned amount? now Eid had passed how can I make it up for it?

He may do it the next day at a similar time.

Eid Prayer is a Fardh prayer (obligatory), according to Salafis, while according to Hanafis, it is a Wajib (nessecary) prayer.

  • Do you have any proof for declaring the Eid prayer fard?
