Nicotine patches

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
Is it permissible to put on a nicotine patch while fasting? The nicotine patch is placed on the arm and the nicotine is time released into the bloodstream as an aid to quit smoking and to stop the craving for a cigarette. This method does not involve inhaling any smoke?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 1108/1134/N=09/1435)

Yes, it is right to put on a nicotine patch while fasting provided it does not contain any intoxicative ingredient. It shall not nullify the fast.
