Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states: “As a fasting Muslim lady you should know that taking contraceptive pills during the day will definitely break your fast. So, you cannot take it while fasting. It cannot be considered a medical necessity exempting you from fasting. Therefore, you need to work out other ways in consultation with your physician so that you won’t end up breaking your fast.”
