In brief: Increased risk

Here's a link to a review on how the fast affects kidney patients.
The fact that there are mixed results of studies of kidney stones during this month tells me that the risk you've cited is probably real even if you drink plenty of water from dusk to dawn. Islamic principles exempt the sick and you may speak to your spiritual advisor. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3872613/

In brief: Talk to your doctor

It is always best to discuss any dietary changes first with your doctor. It is important to stay hydrated when you have a history of kidney stones.
