    Title: Use of inhaler during fasting

    Question: I am suffering from asthma problem and this makes lots of hindrance during fasting and due to this I regularly use pump. In this condition can I use pump while fasting?

    Fast shall break if pump (inhaler etc) are used; hence you cannot use them. However, if you have to suffer unbearable pain in keeping fast due to the hot weather and long day in the month of Ramadan then you may postpone fasting right now and can make its qaza in winter.
