Q 5: What is
the ruling on giving injections to women,
given that it is sometimes hard to find a Muslim woman to undertake this task or there is a woman to do this but she lives in a far place? If there is an available non-Muslim woman, will it be more preferable that she or a male Muslim gives an injection to a Muslim woman?
The basic rule in this respect is that Muslim women should be injected by women. If a Muslim female physician is not available, a non-Muslim female one can do it; and if she is not available, then a Muslim male physician can do it. (Part No. 24; Page No. 420) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
