Its time to be angry.

I thought the answer was E) None of the above.

Don't just do something! Stand there.

how about an injection/vacination?

"How many people find fault in what they're reading and the fault is in their own understanding" Al Mutanabbi

how about an injection/vacination?

Doesn't break your fast. But if possible to plan ahead it's better to schedule vaccinations outside of Ramadan, because they can make you feel sick and it's probably healthy to be able to drink water.

Don't just do something! Stand there.

10. Before the fasting of Ramadan became obligatory, Muslims were ordered to fast on which day?

A. 10th Muharram

Is this correct? I had thought the only significance for the date had come from near the end when the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam (Peace and Blessings be upon him) said something on the lines that if he lived til the following year, he would fast on three days?

Its time to be angry.

Is this correct?

yes.

how about an injection/vacination?

Doesn't break your fast.

unless its going on your vein

"How many people find fault in what they're reading and the fault is in their own understanding" Al Mutanabbi

even then.

Its time to be angry.

not according to my dad :/

he said it goes straight to ur heart and gives u energy hence breaking it :S

"How many people find fault in what they're reading and the fault is in their own understanding" Al Mutanabbi

vaccinations give no energy.

Other types of injections that are there to give you energy are a different thing.

Its time to be angry.

o yeah, i was talking about normal injections then ^ Smile

"How many people find fault in what they're reading and the fault is in their own understanding" Al Mutanabbi

o yeah, i was talking about normal injections then ^ Smile

all injections go into a vein/artery, don't they (sbf)?

but it's a necessary thing for some people to live! It doesn't mean their fasting isn't accepted.

Everyone who went on Umrah with me got their jabs during ramadan - and we wouldn't have without being sure it was ok.

Maybe your dad is talking about going on a drip that pumps glucose/salt water into you.

Allahu 'Alim

Don't just do something! Stand there.

maybe he is.

but no, some injections go into ur muscles and otheres in ur veins

"How many people find fault in what they're reading and the fault is in their own understanding" Al Mutanabbi

Jabs are rarely into the vein - thye go into the muscle.

Its time to be angry.

i took a some lectures for fasting and its fiqh. according to the technical definition of saum (fasting),
"nothing should be allowed to enter the body cavity through the five openings,, these r mouth, nose, ears, front and back passage of the private parts".
so according to this definition injections of any kind, whether vaccines or normal doesn't break ur fast. however drips & injections for nutritional purposes come in the grey area & should be avoided.
i hope this clears out some confusions about the fast Smile

However, if you spend your whole day with a glucose drip erm... that does neate your fast.

If you spend the whole day with a glucose drip, you got bigger problems...

What about eye drops? similar situation...

Dunno, but ear drops are allowed if that helps.

"ouch, my eye!" "here, but this in your ear."

Its time to be angry.

eye drops r ok, ear drops break ur fast

ear drops break ur fast

prove it.

Its time to be angry.

ear drops break ur fast

prove it.

he took some lectures on the fiqh of fasting!

Don't just do something! Stand there.

so is that correct?

Its time to be angry.

so is that correct?

No Eye Deer.

Don't just do something! Stand there.

I have read that ear drops can break the fast if you put so much in that they go too far into the ear that they go inside or something, but that is not normal and the exact anatomical terminology fails me and I cba to google.

EDIT - quick google says that both are allowed.

Wearing kohl/surma/eyeliner? is even sunnah.

Its time to be angry.

Is it fasting or ihram where you shouldn't wear perfume?

Don't just do something! Stand there.

ihram. WHich also means trying to avoid touching the cloth around the ka'bah as that is very perfumed...

Its time to be angry.
