Drinking Water During Fast

Question

If one gets dehydrated due to fasting and has been advised to drink throughout the day due to his medical condition, what if this person keeps drinking during his Ramadan fast but avoid eating totally during the hours of fast and eats at normal Iftar time?


Answer

The sick is allowed to leave the fast and complete it later one when he is well and healthy. He may drink and eat during the days he is not fasting. When the Shari'ah has given this allowance we do not need to break the fast and stop eating considering ourselves as fasting. This is not allowable according to the Shari'ah.
