Can I use an inhaler for  asthma while I am fasting ?
Time: Tuesday July 19, 2011 at 11:21 am

A: وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته


Allah has made matters easy for a sick person (quran.) If one is forced to use an inhaler, resemble the fasting person as best as you can, use the inhaler when needed and after Ramadhan give your fidya for those fasts in which you used the inhaler.

Allah (SWT) would reward such a person greatly for their intention and efforts.

Allah Certainly Knows Best.

p.s. When two opinions exist and the matter is as serious as in the likes of fasting, it would be best to use the above opinion.
