His Eminence SHAIKH AHMED BIN HAMAD AL KHALILI Grand Mufti of Oman

Q: A person is originally from Al Dakhiliya Governorate but resides in Muscat. When Ramadhan comes, he does not fast because he is a traveler and he cannot fast in hot weather. Should he make up days of Ramadhan in winter?

A: If he settles in Muscat, he must not. He should expiate for each month he did not fast unless he is sick. In this case, he can break fasting but should make up the missing days later.
