As-salamu `alaykum. This month of Ramadan is going to go as follows for me, physical education in summer school from 8 to 12, work from 2 to 7, which requires me to unload heavy boxes in a hot trailer. After all that I plan on going to the gym after my fast. My question is: in my case, is it okay for me to break my fast early? My friend said a sheikh told him I could do it according to Maghrib time in Morocco. Is this okay? I’m doing a lot of physical work in a day without food or water, which requires energy.
Wa `alaykum as-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
In this fatwa:
In his response to your question, Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and an Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states:
Therefore, you should see if you can be excused from some of these highly tedious tasks during the month of Ramadan. If you cannot be granted an exception, and you find it hard to bear the rigors of fasting and abstention from foods and drinks, you may skip the fast and make up for it later.
You ought to know this is only an extreme concession for those who are unable to function while fasting. You also ought to remember that blessings and rewards of Ramadan cannot be replicated during other months.
Allah Almighty knows best.
