Ruling 1690

If a fasting person travels after ẓuhr, he must, based on obligatory precaution, complete his fast; and in such a case, it is not necessary for him to make up that fast. If he travels before ẓuhr, then based on obligatory precaution he cannot fast on that day, particularly if he had made the intention to travel the night before. In any case, he must not do anything that invalidates a fast before reaching the permitted limit (ḥadd al‐tarakhkhuṣ),16 otherwise kaffārah becomes obligatory on him.

16  The permitted limit is explained in Ruling 1304.
