Nullifying the intention of sawm

Question: If there must be intention before any saying, deed, activity, or thought: What is the ruling on rejecting intention or nullifying it by saying, for example: I nullify my Sawm (Fast)?

Answer: If someone intends to retract the intention of a Waajib (obligatory) Sawm, Sawm becomes nullified. The Prophet (peace be upon him) stated: The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions. Hence, if the intention is nullified, the deed – which is Sawm in this question – is consequently more here.
