Obligation of The Believer in The Month of Ramadan

The Noble Scholar Shaykh Ibn Baaz  (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:

That which is obligatory upon the believer is to stay away from the prohibitions of Allāh. The acts of disobedience are prohibited at all times and in all places.

Those Who Leave Off The Maghrib Prayer in Congregation Due to Breaking the Fast

The Noble scholar Shaykh Salih al-Fawzān  (may Allāh preserve him) said:

Here, there’s a matter which is a must that attention be brought to, and it is that some of the people sit at the table where a person’s fast is broken, have dinner and leave off praying Maghrib in congregation in the Masjid. As a result of that, the person commits a great mistake, and it is staying back from  praying (the Maghrib) in congregation in the Masjid.

Visiting Mount Thawr or the Cave of Hirā

Shaykh Rabee Ibn Hādi al-Madkhali was asked the following:

Question: What is the ruling on climbing Mount Thawr or the Cave of Hirā [Nūr], simply for the purpose of viewing and having knowledge of the places which the Prophet ﷺ visited?

Answer: If it [the visit] coincides with the [same] days as the visits [to Mount Thawr or the Cave of Hiraa or Nūr] of the ignoramuses, the people of superstition and the people of innovation, then it is not permissible for a student of knowledge to participate with them in this evil. This is so that the people do not think he [the student of knowledge] is with them, except if he is going there with the intention of advising and clarifying to them that this visit is NOT from the religion of Allah; and it is not legislated.
