Who have legal excuse to not observed Obligatory fast 👇
It was narrated from Anas bin Malik that a man from the tribe of Banu “Abdul-Ashhal, while (one narrator) “Ali bin Muhammad said (he was) a man from the tribe of Banu “Abdullah bin Ka’b, said:
“The cavalry of the Allah’s massanger (saws) attacked us, so I came to the Allah’s massanger (saws) while he was eating a meal. He said: “Come and eat.’ I said: “I am fasting.’ He said: “Sit down and I will tell you about fasting.
Allah (swt) has relieved the traveler of half of the prayer, and He (Allah swt) has relieved the traveler, the pregnant, and the nursing mothers of the duty to fast.’ By Allah, the Prophet (saws) said them, both, or one of them, and now I feel so disappointed that I had not eaten of the food of the Allah’s massanger (saws).”

* When this event took place, Anas bin Malik kabi had already embraced Islam but his tribe had yet not embraced Islam.
* Half of the prayer being forgiven to a traveler means the prayers consisting of four obligatory Rak’ah are offered with just two Rak’ah, whereas morning and sunset prayers are, even during a journey offered with the total obligatory raka’at .
* A traveler, or a pregnant or breastfeeding woman are exempt from observing fasts, meaning they are not required to fast due to their excuse and shall later make these up
