    Title: fasting and nimaze taraawi during tour

    Question: I want to know is it fardh for us to fast during long tours (safar) and when we reach the place should we have to offer tarawih.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1258/H-307/TH=10/1434) If one does not keep fast in Shariah journey then it is allowable. It shall be wajib to make its qadha later. However, one should offer tarawih with ease after reaching the destination. If there is no peace of mind i.e. one is travelling in train or bus etc and the Shariah musafir misses the tarawih then it is allowable. But it is better to find out any way to offer it and try not to miss it.
