Q & A for Ramadan

Jan 12, 2015

Answer; Yes, the fast is still valid. (Shaami)

 

Question
Is it permissible for a husband and wife to kiss whilst fasting?

Answer;

   1. One does not swallow the saliva of his/her partner;
   2. One has control over his/her desire and is not driven by desire to sexual intercourse or ejaculation. (Fataawa Hindiya)

 

Question
Is a fasting woman allowed to breastfeed her baby?

Answer;
Yes, this is permissible.

 

Question
Can I have a blood test done whilst fasting?

Answer;
Yes, you could do so provided that you do not become so weak that fasting becomes difficult.

 

Question
Can I visit my gynecologist or have a pap-smear during Ramadhan?

Answer;
The fast would be nullified if medication is inserted into the private part. It would therefore be advisable to delay the appointment until after Ramadhan. (Fataawa Hindiya – vol. 1, pg 204)

 

Question
If rain water enters my mouth and swallowed, is my fast broken?

Yes. (Fatawa Hindiya – vol. 1, pg 203; Fatawa Shaamiya vol. 2, pg. 403)

 

Question
Does a woman have to keep qadha of fasts missed due to menstruation?

Answer;
Yes, Aisha (Radiallaahu Anha) reports from Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) that a menstruating woman will keep the qadha of missed fasts but there is no qadha for salaah missed during menses. ( I’laaus Sunan vol.1 pg. 372)

 

Question
I am a diabetic and not in a position to keep fast. How do I compensate for the missed fasts?

Answer;
Allah Ta’ala has granted permission to people like yourself to compensate the fast with contributions for poor muslims. The Jurists have equated this amount to that of Sadaqatul Fitr (money given on Eid day to the poor) it could be paid at the beginning of Ramadhan or at the end. (Shaami). This money may not be discharged before Ramadaan.

 

Question
Is it permissible to apply oil to the head whilst fasting?

Answer;

The fast is not affected by inserting medication into one’s eye, whether the medicine is liquid or non-liquid. (Fataawa Hindiya, vol. 1, pg. 203)

 

Question
I am writing exams during Ramadhan and find it difficult to concentrate whilst hungry. Can I delay my fast until after Ramadhan?

Answer;
It is not permissible to do so. Keep your fast and pray to Allah Ta’ala to make it easy for you. (Fataawa Raheemiya Vol. 2. pg 34)

 

Question
I am an asthmatic. Does the usage of the pump break my fast?

Answer;
It is advisable that you use your pump at Sehri Time and Iftaar time. However, if you do have an attack then you could use your pump. This will break your fast and a qadha will have to be kept.

 

Question
Is it permissible to swim whilst fasting?

Answer;

Sehri is a sunnah practice. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) is reported to have said, “Partake of sehri, for verily there is barakah (blessings) in Sehri.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

However the fast is valid without sehri.
