Alsalam alaykum
My question is about fasting in Ramadan. I have my son who is a university student who travel 200 km every day back and forth from home to university, four or five days every week. And as he cant drive, I \’m driving him back and forth daily more than 200 km. In this case, am I a traveler that I should reduce my prayers and break my fasting. If not, do i have to consider this as my daily job moving my son every day back and forth the above distance which mean that I keep my fasting and prayer with no reduce in number of rokaat. When I read the fasting rules and regulation in the Ebadat part of the Fiqh book , I understand that my son can fast while traveling in his job as a student, but he can\’t go without me as a driver for him. So, I appreciate if I know my duty about fasting Ramadan and my prayer. Thank you very much in advance.
Alsalam Alaykum
