Question:

A person is ill and his doctor said to him that it is essential for him to
take certain medications 2-3 times during the day. Is it permissible for
such a person to abstain from fasting?

Answer:

If a religious Muslim doctor who is an expert in his field says that it is
harmful for such a person to keep a fast, and that if he does not take
his medication during the day then his illness will worsen, then it will
be permissible for such a person to abstain from fasting. It is necessary
for him to keep qada once his health is restored.

Allah ta‛ala knows best.
