Fiqh of Fasting: Recommended to break one’s fast if ill or fears harm from fasting

4. Recommended for one who is ill and fears harm from fasting.

When one gets sick while fasting could cause harm to one’s health then it is recommended for the person to break his/hers fast. Sickness or illness is unpredictable, when Allah wills that he/she gets an illness then he/she will get it. So if the fast is a cause for one’s health to degenerate then it is recommended for him/her to break his/hers fast and make it up at a later time. One can’t just wake up and attempt a fake cough and say “Oh well I’m sick and I can’t fast I guess I’m eating all I want to eat.” It is when the sickness or illness is a hardship for a person, it is better for him to break his fast and make it up later. And in the end a person’s sincerity is only known by Allah alone.
