The Proprieties of Travel

What If I Am Traveling Daily during Ramadan?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam


I will travel daily at least 100 Kilometers due to work.

Should I count this as a travel for exemption from fasting? How about prayers? reduced or full?


I pray you are in the best health and faith, insha’Allah.


Yes, you will shorten your prayers during your journey. You can begin shortening them from the point you leave your city boundary.

See: Shortening Prayers when Traveling for Leisure?


You will be excused from fasting if you initiate your journey and have left your city boundary before the entrance of Fajr time. However, if it does not pose a difficulty for you to fast, you should strive to do so.

And Allah alone gives success.
