What is your opinion on the view of one who says that sick people and travellers are obliged to break the fast and make it up later on, and it is not permissible for them to fast, because Allah, may He be exalted, said [interpretation of the meaning] : “and whoever is ill or on a journey, the same number [of days which one did not observe Sawm [fasts] must be made up] from other days” [al-Baqarah 2:185] , so what is obligatory for them is to make up the fast, and this means that they should not fast?.

I work as a truck driver. Now the blessed month of Ramadan has come to us, and I was travelling, as were many truck drivers. I fasted but the other drivers with me did not fast whilst travelling.
They said to me that the reward is for the one who does not fast whilst travelling, and there is no reward for the one who fasts whilst travelling. I hope that you can advise me about that. May Allah reward you with good.
