A man fast during Ramadan and his thirst become severe, so he drinks. So what is the ruling on whoever breaks his fast intentionally?
In the Name of Allah the Most Merciful,
He must make repentance to Allah and make up for the day of fasting. There is no expiation due on him according to most correct opinion between the scholars. There’s no punishment or expiation on a person other than for the person who has sex during the day during Ramadan. This is because there is a specific hadith reported concerning this issue.
Allah knows best.
