Assalmo Alikum. Ramadan is fast approaching and my family does not want me to fast. I suffer from and eating disorder and I’m really underweight, I have a BMI of 11 and healthy is 18. My family is worried that if I fast it would harm me. I’ve been to doctors and they also think I shouldn’t fast either. However i feel like i can and feel like i would be okay to. What is the ruling on illnesses and fasting during Ramadan. Would my situation allow me not to fast or should i be allowed to fast. 

thanks
