Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Is it permissible for a sick person to break the fast because of toothache?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
If the person who has toothache needs to break his fast, he may do so, because in this case he is one of the sick to whom Allah granted a concession allowing them not to fast.
And Allah is the Source of strength. May Allah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and Companions. End quote.
