The holy month of Ramadan is approaching, and the Corona virus continues to spread in various regions, and a number of doctors recommend drinking water in close periods to reduce the risk of coronavirus because the lack of water in the body reduces its immunity and if the throat dries up, if the virus reaches it, it will allow it to move to the respiratory system, while drinking water helps get it to the stomach and eliminate it. So is it possible for the Muslims not to fast in Ramadhan due to this reason?

Fasting the month of Ramadan is one of the great obligatory prayers. It is one of the rituals of Islam. The obligation does not cease except with a legal excuse such as travel, sickness and menstruation in women. As for the possibilities and general concerns mentioned in the question, they are not considered an excuse for breakfast, this problem can be solved by following the general advice recommended by the professionals as wearing gloves, avoiding mixing with people, staying at home and the use of sanitizer, etc., as fasting does not harm those who do not have a health problem. Yes, he who has real and realistic fears of harm he may eat what is needed to remove the threat, if he needs to drink some water and he cannot satisfy this need by taking large quantities of water before abstaining from eating and drinking at dawn, there is nothing wrong with eating the amount of need during the month and he is still holding on to all other things that break the fast because he is not sick until he is allowed to break his fast and spends that day. But if he can do without it with things that moisturize his mouth and throat by increasing the amount of saliva without eating the breakfast, he should do this, for example, using a sour thing or chewing gum free of sugar and the coherent part of something which does not crumble and enters the stomach. But the afflicted by a disease for which fasting is harmful, such as a failure in the work of the kidneys or some stages of diabetes, he may have breakfast, because he is excused

May God protect you and all believers from all evils!
