Assalaamu Alykum,
I am on the injection as a form of reversible birth control, and need to have the injection every 3 months. My next appointment is early July – is it permissible to get this injection during Ramadaan, or do I need to reschedule for outside of Ramdaan?
Jazak’Allah in advance.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Injections do not invalidate the fast[1]. Therefore it would be permissible to take the injection in Ramadhan.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
