Book Name:Allah walon kay Rozay
observe fasts, and when they do fast then very often they break it, though there is no Shar’i permission of doing such a thing in the days of Ramadan that weakens the body and raises the strong possibility of breaking the fast.
A legendary and leading scholar of Shari’ah and Tareeqah, ‘Allamah Maulana Mufti Muhammad Amjad ‘Ali A’zami رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said: In blessed Ramadan, to do a piece of work that causes weakness and raises the strong possibility of breaking the fast is not permissible, therefore, the baker should bake loaves until the noon, then the remaining day he should take rest. The same has been stated for masons and labourers and for others who labour hard. If there is a fear of being weak, one should reduce his work so that he may observe fast. (Bahar-e-Shari’at, part 5, vol. 1, pp. 998)
Dear Islamic brothers! Keep this in mind as well that if somebody is suffering from a disease which can become more serious by observing a fast, then the Islamic jurists have recommended guidelines in the light of Quran and Hadees, through which he is allowed to miss his fasts. Therefore, those who do not have sufficient strength to observe fasts due to a disease, should seek guidelines from a Sunni Islamic scholar (who has correct beliefs) or from Dar-ul-Ifta Ahl-e-Sunnat according to his condition as to whether he is allowed to miss fasts or not as per Shari’ah. Do not miss fasts only because of your own speculation or thought.
Remember that Dawat-e-Islami has more than 103 departments; one of them is Dar-ul-Ifta Ahl-e-Sunnat. اَلْـحَمْـدُ لـِلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ, up to now, 4 Dar-ul-Ifta Ahl-e-Sunnat are working in Bab-ul-Madinah Karachi, besides that, Dar-ul-Ifta Ahl-e-Sunnat are also serving the grieved Ummah of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in Zamzam Nagar (Hyderabad Bab-ul-Islam Sindh), Sardarabad (Faisalabad), Markaz-ul-Awliya (Lahore), Rawalpindi and Gulzar-e-Taybah (Sargodha) in Shar’i guidance.
Apart from this, the Islamic brothers of ‘Dar-ul-Ifta Online’, an online department, working under ‘Majlis Ifta’, are carrying out this responsibility
