Can I break my fast if I become ill…

Question:

What is the ruling for a person who became ill whilst in the state of fasting, Is it permissible for him to break the fast?

Answer:

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

If a person is sure that if he would not break the fast his illness would be aggravated, hence it will be permissible for him to break the fast. He would only have to make Qada and not give Kaffarah.[1]

And Allah Ta’ala knows best

المريض إذا خاف على نفسه التلف، أو ذهاب عضو منه يفطر بالإجماع، وإن خاف زيادة العلة وامتداده، فكذلك عندنا، وعليه القضاء إذا أفطر لقوله تعالى: (ومن كان مريضاً أو على سفر، فعدة من أيام أخر)
