I have read so many fatwas for and against using asthma spray while fasting.
Does using an asthma inhaler invalidate the fast and why can’t our ulama agree on such a simple question without saying there is a difference of opinion.
wa `alaykum salam,
We addressed the specific bronchodilator issue two Ramadans ago and it was posted here:
As for “Why can’t our ulema agree on such a simple question without saying there is a difference of opinion”, the Companions themselves differed over simple Prophetic statements in the lifetime of the Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) and he himself did not gainsay one interpretation for another, thus teaching us that the reality of human differences does not affect piety or right worship when intention is correct. Therefore in non-decisive matters some scholars and non-scholars prefer strictness and erring on the side of precaution for peace of mind; while others prefer ease because the Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) encouraged it. And Allah knows best.
