Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
A man had to go to the hospital in Ramadaan when he was fasting, and when he got to the hospital some blood was taken from him. Did this spoil his fast?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
If the blood that was taken from him was considered to be a small amount, then his fast is valid and he does not have to make up that day. If it was considered to be a large amount, then he should make up that day so as to avoid an area of scholarly dispute, and so as to be on the safe side and be sure that he has fulfilled his obligation.
And Allaah is the source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his family and companions.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
