Is it permissible for someone working in a bakery not to observe Sawm in Ramadaan?

Question: I request from Your Eminence a Fatwaa (legal opinion issued by a qualified Muslim scholar) on Iftaar (breaking the Fast) in Ramadaan. I work in a bakery in front of the oven and I cannot bear the extreme heat of the fire. I observed Sawm (Fast) last year because I did not work in Ramadaan. In-shaa’-Allaah (if Allaah wills), I must observe Sawm this year.

Answer: You must observe Sawm. Allaah (Exalted be He) states: So whoever of you sights (the crescent on the first night of) the month (of Ramadaan i.e. is present at his home), he must observe Sawm (fasts) that more here.
