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.
