Speaking to one’s fiancée over the phone when fasting
can one be fasting and be talking to her fiancé over the phone?
Praise be to Allaah.
There are guidelines that have to do with speaking to one’s fiancée, details of which may be found in Question no. 13791.
guidelines are met, especially the stipulation that there be no risk of
provoking desire and if there is a need to speak to her, then it is
permissible. But if any of these guidelines is not met then talking to her
becomes something that is not allowed according to sharee’ah. If you talk to
her and one of these guidelines is not met whilst you are fasting, this is
going to affect your fast. In this case it is worse and a more serious sin,
because it is happening at a time of virtue, and because the one who is
fasting has to protect his fast from anything that may spoil it or affect it.
