Fasting after the journey has finished
Question:

A traveller breaks his fast during his journey and when he reaches his place of residence, does he refrain (from eating) or is there no objection to eating, and what is the evidence?
Answer:

Breaking of the fast (ie eating) during the journey is a rukhsah (concession) which Allaah has made for creating ease for His Servants. So if the reason for the concession falls away, then the concession falls away along with it. So whoever arrives at his town from his journey in the day must refrain (from eating) in order to fall under the generality of His Statement, the Exalted:

So whoever of you witnesses the month (of Ramadaan) then he should fast. Soorah al Baqarah (2) aayah 185

And with Allaah is the tawfeeq. And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and his Companions.
