As-Salaamu Alaikum I was at Arifjan this past Ramadhan for only 10 days. For that reason and because of medical reasons, I kept the status of Musafar for the majority of the trip. The barracks/dormitories has refrigerators and microwaves so for the few days I did fast, I gathered sandwiches and gatorade packets from the dining facility the night before. There are water bottles all over the place. Be sure to hydrate the entire time from Maghrib to Fajr and ensure you keep your body salts up.

Waleikum Salaam, Thank you for the tips. I agree Hydration was one issue I was worried about but Insha'Alalh I will make it. Stay Safe!
