Hadith on Fasting: Companions fasted and broke fast during travel

Anas bin Malik reported: We would travel with the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and those who fasted did not blame those who broke their fast, and those who broke their fast did not blame those who fasted.

In another narration, Abu Sa’id al-Khudri said: Their view is that whoever found strength to fast, he fasted and that was good. Whoever found himself too weak to fast, he broke his fast and that was good.

عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ قَالَ كُنَّا نُسَافِرُ مَعَ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَلَمْ يَعِبِ الصَّائِمُ عَلَى الْمُفْطِرِ وَلاَ الْمُفْطِرُ عَلَى الصَّائِمِ

وفي رواية أخرى عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ قال يَرَوْنَ أَنَّ مَنْ وَجَدَ قُوَّةً فَصَامَ فَإِنَّ ذَلِكَ حَسَنٌ وَيَرَوْنَ أَنَّ مَنْ وَجَدَ ضَعْفًا فَأَفْطَرَ فَإِنَّ ذَلِكَ حَسَنٌ
