Fasting While Away From Home

Question

I am travelling to UK for twenty days. A few early fasts (12 to 14 fasts)of Ramadan will come during my stay there. Within UK I will also be roaming and travelling between cities. I think it will be difficult for me to keep my fast during my stay in UK as I will be in the outdoors most of the time so can I make up for these days after Eid?


Answer

The Holy Qur'an allows us to leave fast when we are travelling. This means when you will be on journey you can leave the fasts and make them up later. However, when you are staying there in a center and are not travelling between the cities it would not be possible to leave fasts. You will be required by the Shari'ah to keep fasting when you are staying in a city and are not travelling.
