Ramadan is upon us! How many of you fast while traveling? Also, how do you make sure your breath doesn't kill a client while fasting?

Mint floss brushes from CVS and fasting is not required for those traveling. Allah loves that you take and fulfill his exceptions just like you fulfill His obligations. Make up the days as required unless spiritually it does not feel good at all and you know you will be lazy to make them up.

If it’s same or only a one hour time zone difference I keep, only because I get lazy after Ramadan to make it up
But exercise your better judgement
And I brush throughout the day and mouthwash in the morning

A floss a day keeps a bad breadth away from client. 😂 I also fast while traveling.

AA1, if you look at the body of exceptions in Islam, travel is one of them. Also based on local custom, it is considered travel and distance wise it is travel since you are not staying in your home city. This still applies to yesterday, today, and tomorrow. As you get older you will realize and feel the wisdom of accepting Allah’s exceptions.

Also faster here. It’s tough. I tried to take time off in past years. Will likely do same this year

So questions for individuals not fasting while traveling. What are you doing different while traveling that keeps you from fasting as normal. This not to judge you but I believe back in the day this practics would be permissible due to longer travel durations and experiencing mother nature as we didn't have cars, busses, or plans lugging us around. So I Know this is allowed but what is the justification to fo so in this day and age.

I usually fast while traveling, but I find it challenging to have a normal suhoor in my hotel room, especially if I’m in some random hotel in a remote / non-urban area. Especially challenging for these super long fasts. Also, it is harder to just power through the long fast with a water only suhoor now that I’m old af.
