    My sister is 9 years old and Ramadhan is starting soon. It's compulsory for her to fast but the school says only year 5 and 6 are allowed to fast and she's in year 4. What should we do?
    Don't make her fast at that age! That is cruel and no it isn't compulsory so stop making things up! She is a child. The school is responsible for her when she is at school so it is their choice whether they allow it or not!!

    Unless she's hit puberty, it isn't compulsory for her to fast.

    And right now, the fasts are like 18 hours, so it really wouldn't be healthy for her to fast 30 days straight anyway. I know many people my own age who struggle with fasting.

    Would these be her first fasts or has she done any fasts before?
