Breaking fast due to dehydration

Answered by Maulana Maruf Ahmed

Question:

I broke my fast deliberately as i was in a sport competition and was dehydrated what do i do as i feel guilty?

Answer:

Bismillah

If someone breaks their fast due to an illness such as severe dehydration, only a Qada (single make-up fast) needs to performed. Kaffarah will not be binding. [1]

And only Allah knows best.
