Fasting is a shield, for as long as you do not tear it apart (i.e. destroy it)

Allah's Name (we) begin with, The Compassionate Most Merciful

As Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaika Ya Rasool'Allah صلٰى الله عليه و سلم

In'sha Allah, over the next few days I will share with you some narrations and laws pertaining to Fasting and other aspects of Ramadaan.

Baihaqi has  reported that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Fasting is a shield, and it is a strong fortress as protection from hell.’

Baihaqi reports from Abu Ubaidah Radi Allahu anhu and Tabrani from Abu Hurairah Radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Fasting is a shield, for as long as you do not tear it apart (i.e. destroy it).’  It was asked, ‘With what will it be destroyed?’  He Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘with lies and backbiting.’

Law:  During Ramadaan it is impermissible to do such things which cause one to become so weak, that one feels there is a predominant likelihood of breaking the Fast.  A baker should thus bake bread until midday, and he should then take rest for the remainder of the day.  [Durr-e-Mukhtar vol.2 pg.157]  This command is (also) for builders, labourers and those who do physically challenging jobs.  If there is a risk of becoming very weak, then one should lessen the work and fulfil the fasts.
