Why this deprivation if these things weren’t basically illegal?
Allah doesn’t chastise us, quite to the contrary, because Ramadan and the action of fasting has a lot of benefits, strengthens our relationship with Allah, He says : ( Believers, fasting is decreed for you as it was decreed for those before you; perchance you will be cautious) ( Al-baqarah 183)

The greatness of the Creator is reflected in the number of the fasting hours ranging between 12 to 18 hours and not more than that, the time between sunrise to sunset this time differs slightly between States according to their geographical location.
It is the mercy of God who drops this imposition on those unable to do. Allah says: (But who is ill, or on a journey shall (fast) a similar number (of days) later on. Allah wants ease for you and does not want hardship for you) (Al – Baqarah 185)
