    The Doctor who tells a person to break his fast, can any Doctor be listened to or is it conditional.

    باسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

    The Doctor who tells a person to break his fast. Can a person listen to any doctor or is it a condition that the doctor is a Muslim>

    If the doctor is a specialist in his field and Is truthful and he says to the sick person that the fast will harm that sick person. Then that sick person should break his fast. Even if the doctor who tells him to break the fast is not a Muslim doctor and other than this non Muslim doctor can't be found. Especially when the sick person has a pressing need to break the fast.

    الدكتور الذي يأمر بالإفطار هل يسمع لأي دكتور كان او يشترط فيه أن يكون مسلما؟

    اذا كان الطبيب متخصصا في المهنة و صادقا فيها و قال للمريض إن الصوم يضزك فإنه يفطر و لو كان الطبيب غير مسلم إذا لم يوجد غيره و خصوصا إذا كان المريض بحاجة الى الفطر

    ِA doctor advised me not to fast because it will harm my health.. After I had not fasted for fifteen days it became clear to me that the doctor was not a muslim. So what should I do?

    It is obligatory upon you to complete on other days those fasts which were not completed. And you were mistaken in relying upon the statement of a doctor who is a non-muslim. Because his opinion cannot be relied upon. And it is obligatory to consult the proficient muslim doctor in this affair and other affairs of the Sharee'ah. And in the future you should bear this in mind. And there are many muslim doctors And all praise is for Allah. And Allah is the one who grants success.

    نصحني طبيب بعدم الصيام لأنه يضر بصحتي و بعد أن أفطرت 15 يوما اتضح لي أن الطبيب غير مسلم فماذا أفعل؟

    يجب عليك قضاء الأيام التي افطرتها و قد أخطأت في إعتمادك على قول الطبيب الكافر؛ لأنه لا يوثق برأيه الواجب استشارة الطبيب المسلم الحذق في هذا و في غيره من الإمور الشريعة و غليك اعتبار ذلك في المستقبل والأطاء المسلمون كثيرون و الحمد لله الله الموفق

    Non-Muslim doctor advised me not to fast as it was harmful to my health

    Question: The doctor advised me not to fast because it was harmful to my health. After I had not fasted for 15 days, it became apparent to me that the doctor was not a Muslim. What should I do?

    Response: It is obligatory upon you to make up (the fasts) for the days you did not fast. You made a mistake in relying upon the statement of a kaafir doctor, because his statement (in such affairs) is not reliable. So that which is obligatory is to consult a proficient Muslim doctor regarding this and other such Islaamic issues. And it is upon you to take this into consideration in future. And Muslim doctors are aplenty, and all Praise is for Allaah (alone).

    And Allaah is the Provider of Success.
