#250: Ruling on Ulcer Patients during Ramadan


” Assalam alaykum waramotulahi wabarakatuhu. How can an ulcer patient do during and after Ramadan”


Wa alaykum Salām Warahmatullāh Wabarakātuh


The Ulcer patient, if his ulceration is such that endangers his health if he observes the fast, is also granted the dispensation ( _Rukhsah_).

He may eat and drink in Ramadān and make up for the missed days when he feels okay and it is healthy for him to fast.

If however it becomes established by a trustworthy medical personnel that such Ulcers are so chronic that he cannot be healed of them, he may then feed on behalf of every fasting day he is not able to fast.

My experience with Ulcers is that this is very very rare and most often not the case.

Therefore people with Ulcers must fear Allāh and not prevent themselves from the fast when they can indeed fast

We ask Allāh for guidance and steadfastness

Allāhu A’alam
