If Work Is Hard Can He Break His Fast? | Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymīn رحمه الله

س : ما رأي فضيلتكم فيمن عمله شاق ويصعب عليه الصيام هل يجوز له الفطر؟

الجواب : الذي أرى في هذه المسألة أن إفطاره من أجل العمل محرم ولا يجوز، وإذا كان لا يمكن الجمع بين العمل والصوم فليأخذ إجازة في رمضان حتى يتسنى له أن يصوم في رمضان؛ لأن صيام رمضان ركن من أركان الإسلام لا يجوز الإخلال به.

Q: What is your eminence’s opinion regarding a person whose work is strenuous and it is difficult for him to fast, is it permissible for him to break the fast?

Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymīn رحمه الله: “What my opinion in this matter is that for him to break his fast due to work is unlawful, and it is not permissible. If it is not possible for him to reconcile his work with fasting, then he should take off from work during Ramaḍān until it is easy for him that he (may) fast in Ramaḍān. The fast of Ramaḍān is a pillar from the pillars of Islām and it is not possible to forsake it.”
