What is the maximum number of days as a traveler, that he can stay in a given city continuously and be exempted from his fast for instance, he goes on to say, if he's a student, he's giving the game away here, if it's a student, and he's traveled abroad for two months, is he exempted from his fast in Ramadan. Most of the scholars what they say that what is the ruling for Salah when a person travels as Ecuador earlier that a beloved partners in Assam said, mentioned in southern Italy Marja
added number 1667, that a beloved Prophet says that Allah subhana wa Taala has exempted
a person from fasting and half of the spears many is traveling and exempted a woman from fasting when she's pregnant cetera. So the ruling what is there for Salah as a traveler it is the same as a person who is fasting and most of the most of the scholars who the difference of opinion. But as for Salah, they say that maximum person who can stay in a city in one place after he had left his own hometown is for four days. So most of the scholars they agree that same thing is for fasting, that maximum they can stay in a city and can be considered as a traveler for four days. If they extend then they will not be considered as a traveler, though the difference of opinion in different
schools of thought to the majority consider this. Coming to the second part of the question, that if a person goes for studies and stays in a foreign land, maybe for two months or three months or several months together, will it be considered as a travel no in this condition is staying for a long time for months together? As far as fasting is concerned concern? He will have to fast all the obligatory fast formula. Next question. If a fasting person has been fasting the whole day decides to travel in the afternoon. He starts his travel in the afternoon. Is it compulsory on him to break is fast or is it optional? What is the best solution if a person starts to travel midday or in the
afternoon, and if he's in the hometown till afternoon, it becomes hard for him to keep the fast, at least in that time. Only time a traveler is permitted to break the fast when he leaves the hometown.
If he decides they're going to leave in the afternoon, it's not possible that it is not fast in the morning, he has too fast in the morning, because they can be Change of plans. If he decided an afternoon he may change his plan. So then it will be a synonym. So if a person is traveling, the only time he can break the fast is when he leaves the city limits is unclear hasn't left he should not be. So if you leave the city limits in the afternoon, he is permitted to break not that he should break. But if you feel there's no hardship, they can continue fasting and complete as fast as option on. Okay, excellent.
Next question is from one of our viewers who's a pilot. And he considers himself to be in a perpetual state of travel. Every day he's traveling on the plane long distances.
And he's asking is he exempted therefore, from all facets? If a person's professional such as a pilot, or if he's a sailor, and he has to travel, and if you lose his hometown, and if he's gone away, supernatural is considered the travel. He's exempted from fasting, but he has to make up his fast
before the next from them. So if he travels a lot, they left too fast nowadays, what a holiday he gets. And when he stationed in hometown, so if he does not want to fast, he's exempted. We will consider the traveler, but we'll have to make up the fast as soon as possible. Before the next from none. Unless you start on a very long flight maybe from India to New York, which is more than 12 hours. But if the the flight is a short flight, I don't think so there'll be problems
