Too tired to Fast

Salam.

The problem is, I find it very difficult to fast. It's very hot in the city that I reside in in Pakistan, and fasting leaves me with really no energy. Add to that the fact that I'm under-weight and you can imagine how difficult it has become for me.

Even though I'm on vacations, I've been unable to do anything productive except laying around until late afternoon doing nothing.

This is taking a toll on my life. Can I skip fast(s) to help with this? I'm not medically sick - no nausea or drowsiness, just feel tired and totally drained of energy to the point of uselessness.

I don't think you can break your fast based on being tired, if that was the case everybody would have broken their fasts by now but if you have a marja and he gives you permission to break it than that's fine so you should go ask your marja if you have one and if you don't then try to find one.

If you are only worried about not doing anything productive, then I suggest you don't skip fast because of that reason. Couple of years ago, I was working in second shift and I skipped fasts because I have no energy left after 6 pm when I am fasting. Anyway, I felt that my excuse was a good excuse, but I was punished and I felt the punishment. If you fast, you will have some unproductive days but rest of year will be good.
