Strong enough to fast when travelling; am I blameworthy? – (Hanbali Fiqh)

Answered according to Hanbali Fiqh by TheHanbaliMadhhab.com

Hamza b. ‘Amr al-Aslami (r) said:

“Oh Messenger of Allah, I find myself strong enough to fast when travelling; am I blameworthy?”

‎‏The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) replied:

“It is a concession from Allah; if one takes it (the concession) then that is good, and if he fasts then there is no blame upon him.” [Muslim]

‎‏Al-Majd (r) said: “There is a strong indication in this (report) that breaking the fast (for the traveller) is better (than fasting).”

‎‏This is the Madhhab of Ahmad, al-Awza’i and Ishaq, and is narrated from Ibn ‘Abbas and Ibn ‘Umar.
