Ruling 1691

If a traveller in the month of Ramadan – whether he travelled before sunrise or he was fasting and then travelled – reaches his home town (waṭan)17 or a place where he intends to stay for ten days before ẓuhr, in the event that he did not do anything that invalidates a fast before reaching that place, he must, based on obligatory precaution, fast on that day and it is not obligatory on him to make it up. And if he did something that invalidates a fast before reaching that place, the fast of that day is not obligatory on him and he must make it up.
