O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may guard (against evil).
(Fasting is) for a fixed number of days; and if any of you is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed number (Should be made up) from days later, and for those (who miss the fast for illness or travel) who are able to do it, is a ransom of feeding one that is indigent. But he that will give more, of his own free will, it is better for him.
And it is better for you that you fast, if you only knew.
The month of Ramadhan in which was revealed the Qur’an, guidance for mankind, and clear
proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present,
let him fast the month, and whosoever of you is sick or on a journey, (let him fast the same)
number of other days. Allah desires ease for you; He does not desire hardship for you; and (He
desires) that you should complete the period, and that you should magnify Allah for having guided
you, and that peradventure you may be thankful.
Recently, I met a Muslim who is not able to fast due to medical reason. At first I felt sad for that person and then I realized that I shouldn’t because Allah not only giving ease to those exceptions from fasting but also chances for them to benefit the reward of Ramadhan in other ways.
And as for me I praise to Allah for the life as well as the chances to feel the Ramadhan and seek for forgiveness. InsyaAllah.
The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever gives iftaar to one who is fasting will have a reward like his, without that detracting from the reward of the fasting person in the slightest.”
