Does injection break the fast?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Tafseer Raheemi

Question: can you take medication in the form of injections while fasting? Will it break the fast?


Answer: Such injections are allowed during the fast, and the fast does not break.
This is because the medicine does not directly go into the stomach or the brain, so it’s like a snake bite which does not break the fast.

However, if the injection went direct into the stomach, like a stroke victim who can’t swallow food so a tube is fitted to his throat, and liquid food is given to him through that tube, then that would break the fast.
