Fatwaa ID: 1327

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Will I beable to take an iron drip ?

Will this nullify my fast ?

Jazakallah khair

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

May Allaah Ta’aala grant you shifaa, strength and health. Taking an iron drip while fasting is permissible. It will not invalidate the fast.

We are aware that it does weaken the body when it is administered. If you feel weak after taking it, you will be excused to break the fast and make qadhaa afterwards. Do not force yourself to continue the fast if it is harming you.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
