1758. It is Mustahab for the following persons that
even if they may not be fasting, they should refrain from those acts in the
month of Ramadhan which invalidate a fast:
- A traveler who has committed an act during his journey which makes a fast
void and reaches his hometown before Zuhr, or the place where he intends to
stay for ten days.
- A traveler who reaches home after Zuhr or at a place where he intends
to stay for ten days. The same rule applies if he reaches such places before
Zuhr and if he has already broken his fast while journeying.
- A patient who recovers after Zuhr or even if he recovers before noon, though
he may have committed acts which invalidate fast. And if he has not committed
any such act, then his obligation has been explained in rule no. 1576.
- A woman who becomes Pak from Haidh or Nifas during day time.
1759. It is Mustahab that a person breaks his fast after
offering Maghrib and Isha prayers. However, if he feels terribly inclined to
eat, so much that he cannot concentrate on the prayers, or if someone is waiting
for him, it is better that he should break his fast first and offer the prayers
later. However, as far as possible, he should try to offer the prayers during
the prime time (Fadheelat).
