Is the person studying abroad permitted to break Sawm?

Question: Should we observe Sawm (Fast) in this country, India. It should be known that our stay here is known approximately. Most of us observe Sawm in Ramadaan. Is it permissible for us to break Sawm?

Answer: It is obligatory upon you to observe Sawm in Ramadaan because it is one of the Arkaan (Pillaars) of Islaam. It is impermissible for you to break Sawm because you are in the country where you study. You are not considered travelers. Allaah permits only the ill and the traveler to break Sawm. Allaah (Exalted be He) more here.
