Blood Tests Do Not Invalidate One’s Fast

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Would a blood test nullify a fast. e.g. if someone would insert a needle and take some blood from me by means of it?

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam,

No, a blood test does not invalidate the fast, as it is merely the taking out of blood.

The fast is invalidated when anything enters the body cavity, which is why injections and drips (even those that have nutritive value) do not invalidate the fast. [Bada’i` and Masa’il al-Siyam]

Walaikum assalam,

Faraz Rabbani
