Question

Answer

Walaikumussalam w w

Diabetic patients are not all same. The condition of some is much worse than others, plus some are mentally strong while others are not so fortunate.

My father is a diabetic, he’s nearly 80, yet he fasted on shabe bara’at, and he intends to fast during ramadhan.

So let your husband try the first few fasts, if he can cope ok, otherwise, give fidya and make intention to do qaza of it in short winter days. Fidya is approximately £2 per fast.

Wassalam
