Can I take medication while fasting?
Waleed Basyouni

Like so many things in our faith, the answer to this question is nuanced and based on context. Why medicine is taken and how it is taken both factor into the answer.

An inhaler for an asthmatic or an insulin shot for a diabetic are both fine because neither are being “eaten,” nor are they replacements for food or drink.

For medicine that is taken orally though, or medicine that replaces food or drink [like an IV] the answer differs and refers back to the mercy of Allah in His concessions upon fasting for the ill.
