I need to seek your valuable advice on a certain issue.I am 42 years old and a patient of IBS.My weight is 45 kg and my HB level is always below 10.As soon as I start fasting in the blessed month of Ramazan, my condition becomes worse. I have to take injections of Nerobian to continue fasting. This year even the injections are not working. The question is, can I skip fasting and pay Fidya?
ALLAH knows that it will be very heartbreaking for me.
Looking forward for an early response.
Thanking you in anticipation.
Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.
If your experience shows that your condition is worsened because of fasting, then you are allowed to skip the fast and offer Fidyah. However, I would ask you to check with your physician to ensure that you are not merely basing it on your subjective opinion.
If you are not able to fast because of your medical challenges, you should still be able to seek Ramadan’s blessings by engaging in all other extra prayers and devotions that you can perform so that you make up for the benefits you would be missing otherwise.
Allah is Merciful, and He will compensate what you miss because of your condition as long as you do what you can do. Allah says, “Be mindful of Allah as best as you can.”
Almighty Allah Knows best.
