I am a solider and Ramadan has arrived. Am I permitted to break my Sawm (fast) during Ramadan as the circumstances do not help me to observe it?
You are not permitted to break your Sawm in Ramadan if you are Mukallaf (person meeting the conditions to be held legally accountable for their actions), unless you are on a journey or suffering from a disease that makes you unable to fast. Allah says:
...and whoever is ill or on a journey, the same number [of days which one did not observe Saum (fasts) must be made up] from other days.
Allah (Exalted be He) also says:
...and He has not laid upon you in religion any hardship
And He says:
Allâh burdens not a person beyond his scope.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
"If I order you to do something, do as much of it as you can."
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
