Cricketing legends Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, and Rameez Raja along with Zainab Abbas were seen celebrating Wasim Akram’s birthday during fast. People started criticizing them for not fasting during the month of Ramadan.
While Pakistan was playing test match with England, a birthday party was going on in the press box (as tweeted by Zainab). Zainab Abbas shared some pictures where it could be seen that she was celebrating Wasim Akram’s birthday with Rameez Raja, and Waqar Younis. There is nothing wrong with celebrating birthdays but doing it during fast and then posting pictures of it on social media became the reason for all the criticism.
Here are the pictures shared by Zainab.
Here is what she tweeted

People were asking them to at least respect Ramadan and not post pics like these.

This one talked some sense, that a traveler is exempted from fast under conditions. Still, it doesn’t justify posting such pictures.
A traveler is exempt from fasting (unless they have stayed for more than 15 days). It's allowed for them to eat if that's the case

This is the most sensible tweet of all. Let us just give them the benefit of doubt.
What about giving people thebenefit of the doubt? And do you think insulting someone who isn't fasting will bring them any closer to Allah?
