LAHORE – Muslims around the globe are observing the Holy Month of Ramazan with reverence, however, many of them have a query in their minds that who are exempted from fasting in the holy month.

Acclaimed televangelist, Dr Zakir Naik has proposed following categories of people who are exempted from fasting:

  • If he/she is a minor. *
  • If he/she is insane.*
  • If it’s a lady and she is menstruating. **
  • If she has post-natal bleeding. **
  • If she is pregnant. **
  • If she is breastfeeding. **
  • If a person is ill or sick. **
  • If a person is disabled. ***
  • If person is very old. ***
  • If the person is travelling. **
  • If the person is taking part in Jihad or fight in the cause of Allah. **
  • Under Compulsion. If someone forces the person to break the fast, he/she is exempted. **

*: They do not have to make their fast late on.

**: The moment the condition in which they are gets reversed then they have to make up for the fast they have missed before the next Ramadan.

***: Do not have to make up for the fast but they have to pay the ransom – the feeding of a poor person for every fast that they miss.
