A fasting person being treated with injections, intravenous or intramuscular, during the day of Ramadan

Q 11: What is the ruling on having injection during the daytime in Ramadan, whether for nutrition or treatment?

A: It is permissible for a person observing Sawm (Fast) to be treated by injections, whether intravenous or intramuscular, during the day in Ramadan. But it is not permissible to have nutritive injections, as they come under the same ruling as having food and drinks. (Part No. 10; Page No. 253) Thus, taking them is considered a trick to break Sawm in Ramadan. If it is possible to have the intravenous or intramuscular injections during the night, it will be better.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions.
