I have a friend who has a strict sunni family and alhamdulilah has accepted shia islam, she lives with her family and is a student. During this month of Ramadhan, it is very difficult for her to break her fast at Shi’a timings as she is under taqqiya, where possible she breaks it according to our timings however most of the time she cannot. What is the ruling on these fasts that she breaks a little earlier than our timings, are they void? Will she have to make up all of her Ramadhan fasts as this may be difficult.

If there is a credible threat for her then she is allowed to break it at the earlier time and there’s no qadha.
