Given the myths and fears surrounding Covid-19 vaccine among the Muslim community, the British Islamic Medical Association (BIMA) has joined forces with the NHS to educate people about the importance of vaccine.
The BIMA has urged people, especially Muslims, to take vaccines, and confirmed that it does not ‘invalidate’ fasting during Ramadan.
Since this is the most common fear among Muslims, the BIMA said it has verified the factors with many Islamic scholars who spoke in favour of vaccination.
The BIMA in fact clarified that many scholars agreed on the fact that vaccination is completely halal and permissible to take during fasting in this month of Ramadan.
Not only this, the scholars through BIMA also shared that the vaccines do not contain any pork or alcohol or foetal products hence are safe to be taken by the community while fasting.
