View Full Version : Exams in Ramadan (urgent help)

05-21-2018, 02:32 AM
I am a asthamatic patient and I have a few allergies. Normally during fasting I feel more weak than normal patient and have a low b.p.its normal for me too feel dizzy and stuff.

The thing is usually I fast. It denat really bother me cause most of the times it's holidays and I don't have to do much. But this year we have exams. And these exams are pretty important. Kinda like those which determine whether I will go to uni or not. But I'm not sure if I should fast or not. My mother is urging me to not fast since it can be dangerous for me and I might get really sick. But I read that its not pessimable. Allah is all Forgiving and Loving.

It would be a huge help if someone with knowledge could guide me.

As'salaamu alaikum,

Generally, having exams or difficulty at work (long hours) is not an excuse for not fasting. Either they must be patient and hang in there or try to have their exams postponed or taken earlier.


Generally, one who is ill qualifies to not fast while she is ill as it is one of the acceptable excuses.

however, in your case it's a mix of the two above. Although being ill, you mentioned you are able to fast. But adding exams burden will make you further ill and cause more harm. IF fasting alone was going to cause you harm and make you more ill then you would be excused but if it's the exams then I believe any shaykh will tell you to have your exams rescheduled at another time. That's my opinion and understanding on the matter. But for a definitive answer i would ask a shaykh. Here's one you can ask:
