breaking the fast
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. When are we supposed to break our fasts? Should we wait for the Adhan to be called, or when it is finished calling, or should we do so immediately after sun set regardless of whether the Adhan has been called or not? Some people are insisting that one must wait until the muezzin has finished calling the Adhan and the du`aa’ has been said. Can you clarify this issue? Jazakum Allah khayran.
My relative is a doctor and he wants to ask: if he is doing surgery can he delay breaking the fast?
Salam Alaykum. I am aware of the Prophetic (saw) ahadith that specify it is Sunnah to hasten in breaking the fast and that the Ummah will continue to be in good so long as they hasten in breaking the fast, but if a hadith contradicts the Qur'an (more specifically, the ayah which specifies night time to be iftar, not sunset) - then isn't such a hadith invalid, since it contradicts the Qur'an? So my question is, in light of all of this, and of all the ahadith on this subject - Why is the fast broken at Sunset and not at night fall- as in the Qur'an ?thankyou, Salam.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I was in a gathering a few days ago. I was disturbed to see people divided on the issue of when to break the fast. I saw one group breaking with the adhan over the Radio (Ramadan program), while I saw another group still waiting with dates in their hands for the adhan to finish. What is the sound Islamic ruling on this issue? Jazakum Allah khayran.
As-Salamu `alaykum. Are students allowed not to observe fast on days of Ramadan in order to be able to study or take examination? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Assalamualaykum,I hope you can answer some questions for me:a) If a person intentionally misses a fast of Ramadan he cannot make it up. But if he starts it and then breaks it intentionally for example by eating or drinking, should he make it up or not? Is there a difference of opinion?Or is the only time he has to make up for it and offer kaffarah when he breaks it through sexual intercourse? Please clarify.b) If a person 'does' have to make up a fast that is broken intentionally then is it 'fard' to make it up or only as hope that he will be forgiven?c) What kind of things can a person do to cover up his past mistakes and sins apart from charity, nafl prayers and dikr?May Allah reward you,Wassalam.
My job is often associated with formalin. I have to endure the smell and eye ache due to the strong chemical properties of formalin itself. Does that invalidate my fast?
Respected scholars,Assalamu alaykumWhen a Muslim invalidates his fast by intentionally eating or drinking, does he have to fast one day other than Ramadan to make up for that fast, or is the expiation of freeing a slave, fasting two consecutive months or feeding sixty poor people applicable?Whilst cooking one day in Ramadan, I became unsure of whether I had added the salt or not. I was very worried that my father would be annoyed, and I remembered reading somewhere that in a situation like this if one feared discourse within the family then it was permissible to taste the food, so I tasted it. I remember I swallowed it as well, although it was only a drop of gravy. But now I fear that I invalidated my fast, because the swallowing of food wasn’t unintentional. If that is your opinion too, I’d like to make up for it in sha Allah in the p rescribed way.Jazakum Allah Khair.
Who is the doctor whose judgment (or decision) is to be followed concerning an ill person's breaking fast in Ramadan?
What is the viewpoint of Islam regarding people who have their sahur (pre-dawn meal) in Ramadan after dawn or who break their fast before sunset, thinking that they have done so at the right time, but later they discover that they were mistaken?
Respected scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. Breaking the fast is different for some people. What is considered sunset? Is it when the sun begins to set or when it has set and only dusk lights are visible? When we say sunset, it seems to mean after dark; some people wait the extra 10 minutes, and others break immediately at the time of maghrib... Which one is correct? Jazakum Allahu khayran.
I need FATWA about Two things:1. one day we started the fast in a city where the dawn is at 6 AM and sunset is after 8 PM then we went (by plain) to a city where dawn is at 4 and sunset is at 6:30 so we had breakfast at 6:30 (total fasting time 12 hours instead of 14). 2. A day we were returning back to USA we left China on Sunday at 4 PM and had breakfast in the plain at the sunset time (6:30 PM) and then in about 2 hours after that the night changed to daytime but we were not fasting , we arrived to USA at 5 PM and started fasting the fifth day on dawn Monday in USA(5:30 AM). So the question I have, do we have to make-up any ofthese 2 days ?
As-salamu `alaykum. If a Muslim travels during Ramadan to another country where people there started the fast later or earlier than his country, and he stays in that country until `Eid, with which of the two countries should he break the fast? Jazakum Allahu khayran.
