Drawing blood while fasting


Assalamu alikum
Mufti Sahab I have a question when you are fasting during the month of Ramadan are you allowed to draw blood for medical reasons? Will this break your fast?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The drawing of blood does not break the fast. The fast remains valid.[1]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

(Mufti) Abdul Azeem bin Abdur Rahman
