Using an Inhaler Pump whilst Fasting


Respected Mufti Sahib.
Hope you are fine.
I am Asthma patient and now a days requiring more inhaler during the day time.I need your advice that during fasting can i take inhaler,if needed.You are aware that during Asthma attack inhaler is only remedy in order to sustain your breathing.
Jazak ALLAH.


In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Using the inhaler while fasting will invalidate the fast. If it is used only Qadha will have to be made and not Kaffarah.[1]
