PEOPLE EXEMPTED FROM FASTING IN RAMADAN are:
- Sick people when their health is likely to be badly affected by fasting. They should make up the loss, a day for a day, when they recover after Ramadan.
- A Musaafir, (one who is undertaking a journey of more than 77 k.m. and does NOT intend staying more than 14 day at his destination). However, it is better for him to fast in Ramadan than keep Qaza later, provided the journey is NOT a tiresome one.
- If it is feared that hunger or thirst will lead to death, it is permitted to break one’s fast.
- It is WAJIB to keep Qaza of a NAFL fast that was broken before completing it.
