SeekersHub Answers | Do Insulin Injections Nullify the Fast?

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Assalam Alaikum ,

Although Glucose drips are injected through the arm or bloodstream it still provides nourishment. Would insulin injections nullify the fast?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

Injections do not invalidate the fast, irrespective of the substance they contain.

A drip takes the same ruling. The entrance of something through a recognized entry point invalidates the fast.

Please see: The Complete Guide to Fasting and: “Principles on What Invalidates the Fast”

And Allah alone gives success.

Wassalam,

SeekersHub Answers | What Should I Do If I Was Taking Medication During Ramadan?

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Assalam aleykum

I have been in a lot pain recently and had to miss some days of Ramadan because of pain medication. On some days, I would take pain medicine once after sunrise but before noon and then continue with my fast. Should I make up these days?

Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,

I pray this finds you in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

You must make up all the fasts you invalidated. This includes those invalidated by taking medication during the fasting hours.

Make the intention to make up a fast before Fajr on the day you wish to fast, and then do so.

In future, you should consult with an expert doctor to see if it is possible to take an alternative medicine, or at least to be able to take the medicine outside the fasting hours.

And Allah alone gives success.

Wassalam,
