Breaking One’s Fast During Ramadan Without An Excuse


In the name of Allah, the Most-Merciful, the All-Compassionate


Allah, the Most High, says, {O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that ye may (learn) selfrestraint. (Fasting) for a fixed number of days,’ but if any of you is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed number (should be made up) from days later.} (AI-Baqarah: 183-184)

The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Islam is built upon five pillars: Testifying that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, performing prayers, paying Zakat, making pilgrimage and fasting in Ramada.” [Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

It was related that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said; “Whoever breaks a fast during Ramadan” without an excuse or illness could not requite it by fasting a lifetime, were he to do so.” [Reported by Abu Dawud, At- Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah and Ad-Darimi]

Ibn ‘Abbas, may Allah be pleased with him, said; “Principles of Islam are three: testifying that there is no god but Allah, prayers and fasting in Ramadan. Whoever misses anyone of them has disbelieved.” [Reported by Ya’la and AI-Haithami]

We seek Allah’s refuge from them.
