Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Sheikh has said that vaccination will not break the fast

In Islamic countries, Islamic festivals are celebrated with great religious fervor. However, the most important is the holy month of Ramadan. The month of Ramadan has precedence over all other Islamic months. This month full of blessings and virtues is the month of intercession and forgiveness of Muslims and the month of reaping good deeds.

Last year’s Ramadan came during the Covid epidemic, but this year’s Ramadan will come at a time when millions of Muslims will be vaccinated against Covid and millions will be vaccinated against Covid during Ramadan. The question in the minds of many people is whether the covid vaccine can be given while fasting, it does not break the fast.

A similar question was asked by a person to the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia. During a live TV program, the caller questioned that some people say that the covid vaccine breaks the fast while fasting. In this case, explain what is the Shari’ah ruling. In response to this question, Sheikh Abdulaziz Al-Sheikh, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia and the head of the Council of the Most Eminent Scholars, said that the covid vaccine during fasting does not break the fast at all.

According to shari’ah, it is permissible to take the covid vaccine during fasting, because this vaccine does not count as a food item. This vaccine is transmitted to the body through the muscles, so its use does not affect fasting. The Saudi Ministry of Health launched a vaccine campaign against (Covid 19) in mid-December last year. The vaccine is being provided free of charge to all citizens and foreigners residing in the country.
