Who Must Fast?

Fasting is compulsory for those who are mentally and physically fit, past the age of puberty, in a settled situation (not traveling), and are sure fasting is unlikely to cause real physical or mental injury.

Exemptions from Fasting (some exemptions are optional)

* Children under the age of puberty (Young children are encouraged to fast as much as they are able.)
* People who are mentally incapacitated or not responsible for their actions
* The elderly
* The sick
* Travelers who are on journeys of more than about fifty miles
* Pregnant women and nursing mothers
* Women who are menstruating
* Those who are temporarily unable to fast must make up the missed days at another time or feed the poor.
