Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His Slave
and Messenger.

It is due on you to perform the Friday
prayer, and it is impermissible for you
to remain behind and leave it except
for a legitimate excuse. It is narrated
by At-Tirmithi on the authority of Abu
Al-Ja‘d Adh-Dhamri , may Allah be
pleased with him, that the Messenger of
Allah said: “He who leaves three
Friday prayers out of negligence,
Allah will put a seal over his heart.”
According to the narration of Muslim,
“ Let those people stop leaving the
Friday prayer, otherwise Allah will
put a seal on their hearts, and
afterwards, they will be among the
heedless. ”

Hence, that you work in a hospital is
not a legitimate excuse for you to leave
the Friday prayer, unless you fear that
your absence will cause harm to the
patients and there is no one to replace
you on whom the Friday prayer is not
due, in which case, we hope this will be
a legitimate excuse for you to leave the
Friday prayer.

In fact, the scholars mentioned some
excuses that permit one to leave the
Friday prayer, such as him nursing a
patient or fearing for himself or his
property.
On the other hand, it is not due on the
fasting - or non-fasting - person to
cover his head, nor is it due on one to
remain in a state of ablution while
fasting. Rather, it is favorable for him
to maintain his ablution in general,
whether or not he is fasting, based on
the statement of the Prophet “ and
none but a believer maintains his
ablution. ” [Ibn Maajah]

Also, there is no blame on the fasting
person to swallow his own saliva while
fasting, since it is difficult to avoid
that. Imaam An-Nawawi conveyed
the consensus about that, saying: “To
swallow one’s own saliva does not break
the fast, by consensus. ” According to
the words of Ibn Qudaamah in his
book “Al-Mughni”, “And that which one
could hardly avoid, like swallowing his
own saliva, does not break the fast,
because it is difficult to avoid that. This
is similar to the dust on the road and
the dust rising from sifting the flour. ”
Allah Knows best.
