The Fasting of a Renal Patient
Q: Due to the stone-forming nature of my kidneys, I ought not to fast during the blessed month according to the advice of a specialist doctor. However, I don’t want to break my fast. Assuming my drinking three cups of water – on either one or three separate turns – during the day, would enable me to fast, may I fast under such circumstances?
A: Assuming that the prevention of renal problems requires one to drink water, or other liquids, during the day, fasting no longer is obligatory; moreover, it will not be permissible. Drinking water, under such circumstances, will nullify one’s fast.
