can you break your fast just because of headache?

Postby sahal80 » Wed Jul 24, 2013 6:02 pm

I kept eating different stuff all last night and a lot of cold drink so had earlier in the day stomach problems followed by bad headach.

Al hamdulilah I resist the satanic adea of taking a couple of paracetamols.

Any adea on headach and fasting before I commit sin next time is it considered sickness?

Jazakallah khair

Salaam Alaykum akhie sahal,

''Days numbered and few; then whosoever among you is sick or journeying, for him the like number of other days. And for those who can keep it with hardship the ransom is the feeding of a needy person and whosoever voluntarily poor man doth good, it will be better for him; and that ye fast Will be better for you, if ye only knew''. (2:184) Baqarah

So sahal, if it's a severe health reason u can break fast and make it up later before the next Ramadan!

These (beneath) are health tips from me to you!!!

have plenty water at suhoor and and some paracetemol..? even tho u might not have a headace,but helps through the day.....

i use too suffer bad from headaces in ramadan, but all praises to Allah, this year am fine,,

have something sweet too at suhoor, it helped me fight off the pain

Health Tips For Ramadan

This article provides useful tips on how to avoid some common
problems encountered in Ramadan. If followed, it would enable one to fast
comfortably and enjoy fully the spiritual benefits of Ramadan. During the
holy month of Ramadan, our diet should not differ very much from our normal
diet and should be as simple as possible. The diet should be such that we
maintain our normal weight, neither losing nor gaining. However, if one is
over-weight, Ramadan is an ideal time to normalise one's weight.

Consume Slow Digesting Foods

In view of the long hours of fasting, we should consume slow digesting
foods including fibre containing-foods rather than fast-digesting foods.
Slow digesting foods last up to 8 hours, while fast-digesting
foods last for only 3 to 4 hours.

Slow-digesting foods are foods that contain grains and seeds like barley,
wheat, oats, millet, semolina, beans, lentils, wholemeal flour, unpolished
rice, etc. (called complex carbohydrates). Fast-burning foods are foods
that contain sugar, white flour, etc. (called refined carbohydrates).

Fibre-containing foods are bran-containing foods, whole wheat, grains and
seeds, vegetables like green beans, peas, sem (papry), marrow, mealies,
spinach, and other herbs like methie, the leaves of beetroot (iron-rich),
fruit with skin, dried fruit especially dried apricots, figs and prunes,
almonds, etc..

The foods eaten should be well balanced, containing foods from each food
group, i.e. fruits, vegetables, meat/chicken/fish, bread/cereals and dairy
products. Fried foods are unhealthy and should be limited. They cause
indigestion, heartburn, and
weight problems.

*Fried and fatty foods.
*Foods containing too much sugar.
*Over-eating especially at sehri.
*Too much tea at sehri. Tea makes you pass more urine taking with it
valuable mineral salts that your body would need during the day.
*Smoking cigarettes. Smoking is unhealthy and one should stop completely.

Eat complex carbohydrates at sehri so that the food lasts longer making you
less hungry.
Haleem is an excellent source of protein and is a slow-burning food. Dates
are excellent source of sugar, fibre, carbohydrates, potassium and
magnesium. Almonds are rich in protein and fibre with less fat. Bananas are
a good source of potassium, magnesium and carbohydrates.

As much water or fruit juices as possible between iftar and bedtime so that
your body may adjust fluid levels in

Constipation can cause piles (haemorroids), fissures and indigestion with a
bloated feeling.

Causes: Too much refined foods, too little water and not enough fibre in
the diet.

Remedy: Avoid excessive refined foods, increase water intake, and use bran
in baking, brown flour when making roti.

LETHARGY ('low blood pressure')
Excessive sweating, weakness, tiredness, lack of energy, dizziness,
especially on getting up from sitting position, pale appearance and feeling
faint are symptoms associated with "low blood pressure". This tends to
occur towards the afternoon.

Causes: Too little fluid intake, decreased salt intake.
Remedy: Keep cool, increase fluid and salt intake.
Caution: Low blood pressure should be confirmed by taking a blood pressure
reading when symptoms are present. Persons with high blood pressure may
need their
medication adjusted during Ramadan. They should consult their doctor.

Causes: Caffeine and tobacco-withdrawal, doing too much in one day, lack of
sleep, hunger usually occurs as the day goes by and worsens at the end of
the day. When associated with "low blood pressure", the headache can be
quite severe and can also cause nausea before Iftar.
Remedy: Cut down caffeine and tobacco slowly starting a week or two before
Ramadan. Herbal and caffeine-free teas may be substituted. Reorganise your
schedule during the Ramadan so as to have adequate sleep.

Weakness, dizziness, tiredness, poor concentration, perspiring easily,
feeling shaky (tremor), unable to perform physical activities, headache,
palpitations are symptoms of low blood sugar.
Causes in non-diabetics: Having too much sugar (i.e. refined carbohydrates
especially at suhur (sehri)).
The body produces too much insulin causing the blood glucose to drop.
Remedy: Eat something at sehri and limit sugar-containing foods and drinks.
Caution: Diabetics may need to adjust their medication in Ramadan, consult
your doctor.

All praise to Allah, and may Allah cure you!

Jazakallah akhi
I'm searching for a hadith on headache and fasting if you see it post it pls.

Yeah I got me ice cubes and add them to my drink in order to open my appetite, I drink a lot.

Of course our body needs to have abundance and keep the drought away including taking nice bath, this will make you stay away from getting hydrated. H2O is the major component(cunsur) of our body even our breathe is made of oxygen and we are able to talk bc of that

But I'm afraid of drinking too much make me lose my wight. I do security in the week end and I have been building my body for ages so I don't wanna lose me heebad I'm also planning to become a security captain in the future so I may meet you officially one day in the army.

Thanks for the list of the food, I will add eggs and liver a source of energy, brown whole meal(made of qamadi) custard the same makes you less hungery, good for saxoor

Shaykhunaa Abakar

:lol: at shidda xiilak yaa waad, I thought you would add some hadith :P

Three Ramadans ago I once broke my fast because of a deadly migraine. Subxanallah that migraine was a killer. :lol: But normal headaches, I guess you can cope up with the pain.
