When someone cant do it example cuz they have to work hard that required lots of energy, it is not a must for them, as long as if they fasting, they
will suffer alot cuz of working and might dangered for them.
They can do it in another day as many as day they have skipped.
If it is impossible for them to do it in another day, cuz of working condition or health condition, they are allowed to pay fidyah. The same amount of
food they ate during fasting time or when they supposed to and give it to poor person that dont have much food everyday.
If the person cant pay for it cuz he/she are poor, he/ she have a right not to do fasting and have a right to accept those food.
Basically ramadhan is about to welcome the day when first quran came, the first 5 ayat at ramadhan 17th. And to prepare ourself to get the special
nite, lailatul qadar. Mostly it is about spiritually to build, and to balanced between body and spiritually.
