FASTING WITH TYPE TWO DIABETES

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

QUESTION:

As Salaamu Alaikum,

A sister has type 2 diabetes and is prescribed meds twice a day. She’s been observing the fast, but by mid-day her sugar level is quite high. What should she do about her Ramadhaan fast in this situation?

ANSWER:

Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

She can delay the fast of Ramadhan and make up for it after Ramadhan when betterment in her health may come about. If however, her state continues to be like this in and out of Ramadhan, and she may not get the opportunity to observe the fast in the future in a better state of health, then she can pay the fidya for each day she misses of the fast.

And Allah Knows best
