▪️Insulin injections do not invalidate the fast▪️

? Question:

The questioner says: Does taking insulin injections for diabetes invalidate the fast?

? Answer:

It does not invalidate the fast because it is not nutritional, all it does is replace some of the enzymes in the body. Furthermore, Insulin itself is produced within the body of each person by the pancreas.

If one is able to delay the injection until after breaking his fast, or takes it before dawn, this is better, but if it has to be taken while fasting, the fast is still valid -In Shaa Allaah-.
