Day Questions

I am a university student and during the month of Ramadan I am required to take a set of examinations for a whole day. I am scared that if I fast I will not be able to concentrate and I will risk failing the exams, which are very crucial for me to pass. Is it permissible for me to not fast that day and make it up later after Ramadan?

We advise you to depend on Almighty Allah in all your acts and enter the exam room with the confidence that He is with you as long as you are acting upon His orders and completing your duty of fasting. Yes, if you can travel on the exam day after dawn and break your fast after reaching the Sharia-prescribed distance of breaking the fast, then you can break your fast that day as a traveler, and you should then make it up afterwards.

Can I pay the dower in installments to my wife because my financial situation does not allow me to pay full amount in one time?

If the time of dower payment is due then it must be paid in full when the wife asks for it. The husband does not have to pay it on time if the wife agrees to delay the payment. Also if the husband is unable to pay it, then it is permissible for him to postpone the payment or part of it.
