Salam everyone, I have a question about traveling beyond qasar range during Ramadan for a single day and then coming back, NOT for work or for school, but for going shopping or taking the family for an outing? What times can you leave and come back in order for the fast to not be invalidated? I understand that if you travel outside of "Qasar" range for less than 10 days, not for work, school, or business, you can't fast.... According to http://www.al-islam.org/laws/fasting2.html#1723: 1730. * If a fasting person travels after Zuhr, he should, as a precaution, complete his fast. If he travels before Zuhr and had an intention from the previous night to do so, he cannot fast on that day. As a precaution, he cannot fast on that day even if he had no intention to travel from the previous night. In both the cases, he cannot break the fast till he has reached the limit of Tarakkhus. If he does, he will be liable to give Kaffarah. 1731. If a traveller in the month of Ramadhan, regardless of whether he was travelling before Fajr, or was fasting and then undertook the journey, reaches his hometown before Zuhr or a place where he intends to stay for ten days, and if has not committed an act which invalidates a fast, he should fast on that day. But if he has committed such an act, it is not obligatory on him to fast on that day. What exactly are the rulings about leaving your house in the early morning (like 8am), traveling beyond qasar range, and then returning back home BEFORE time for Zuhr prayers (like 1pm) --- for halal shopping, errands, recreation, etc? (I would be leaving the house after Fajar but before Zuhr. And then returning back home BEFORE Zuhr. Is the fast still valid?) If possible, please cite the references to the appropriate resalah(s).
