السلام عليكم ورحمة الله، هذا أخوك في الله، الأخ أبو جعفر حسن الحنبلي
As-Salaamu `Alaikum wa Rahmatullah, this is your brother in Allah, br. Abu Ja`far Hasan Al-Hanbali.
عندي سؤال لك يا شيخنا
Our Shaikh, I have a question for you.
سؤال ورد عن حكم التطعيم بلقاح كورونا في نهار صوم عاشوراء يفطر أم لا
A question has been brought forward about taking the korona vaccine in the daytime of the Sawm of `Ashura’. Does this break the fast or not?
وسؤال آخر: سمعنا من أناس في الغرب على إنترنت ويوتوب أن الذي تطعم بلقاح كورونا يضر نفسه و أهله لأن ابتدعه طائف من اليهود ك “جورج سورس” ويفعلون هذه ليقتل الناس وينقص عدد الناس في العالم.
Oh, there’s another question as well: We’ve heard some people in the West take to the internet and Youtube claiming that the one who receives the korona vaccine brings harm to himself and his family as a group of Jews – like George Soros for instance – invented it or brought it about and are doing all of this so that people might be killed in abundance and the world’s population might be lowered due to some plan.
وأناس أخرين قالوا أن في لقاح كرونا قطعات صغيرة بسم “نانو تكنولوجيا” وإذا تدخل جسده تغير جُزَيْئات الحَمْضِ النَوَويِّ فيه وتميته بعد أمد قصير.
Still others say that in the korona vaccine are small particles referred to as “nanotechnology” and when it enters the body will change the DNA therein and kill someone after a short period of time due to it.
ما هو نصحيتك و والدك وعلماء المسلمين عن هذه الأقوال..
So what is your advice, that of your father and the scholars of the Muslims regarding these statements?
جزاك الله خيرًا يا شيخ لو سمحت لأسئلة كثيرة عن هذه الأمور العجيبة.
May Allah regard you with goodness, Shaikh. Please excuse me for the many questions regarding these strange or weird affairs.
وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته
Wa `Alaikum us-Salaamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,
اهلا وسهلا اخي ابو جعفر
Welcome to you, Br. Abu Ja`far.
أرسلت الأسئلة الى الوالد وانتظر الرد منه
نحنا هنا في السعودية انا وعائلتي اخذنا اللقاح على جرعتين لانه اصبح امرا ضروريا لتسيير امور الحياة اليومية
We are still domiciled here in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, both I and my family, and we have taken both dosages of the vaccine as it has become a dire matter in order to make easy daily life and movement.
وحسب ما سمعت من مشايخنا هنا انه لايوجد فيه اي شي من هذا الكلام المتدوال على النت
Now according to what I’ve heard from our Shaikhs here there is nothing in the vaccine that establishes this flurry of speech being said on the internet.
له اضرار جانبية ولكن لبعض الحالات مثل الذين يعانون من حساسية مفرطة او ربو وغيره من الامراض المزمنة ولكن كل هذا لا يشكل خطرا على الانسان لانه متابع من قبل وزارات الصحة المحلية والعالمية والله اعلم
Now the vaccine does possess extenuating harms, but it is only in some certain circumstances like those who are already dealing with pre-existing allergies, health concerns and other types of illnesses that are preconditioned; but each of these things don’t pose a danger to the human being at large. And this is the case as what was mentioned and the Ministry of Health, domestically and abroad. And Allah knows best.
الإبر مثل الإبر المغذية والسيروم التي تأخذ بالوريد تبطل الصيام برمضان او غيره أما غير ذلك مثل الأبر العضلية كاللقاح وغيره فلا تبطل الصوم والله تعالى أعلم
An injection in which there is a nourishment or serum administered into the veins does indeed nullify the sawm of Ramadan or any other fast. As for as things besides that, such as a vaccine taken in the arm or a jab or other things, then this does not nullify the sawm. And Allah, Exalted be He, knows best.
fatwa taken: 15 Muharram 1443
 He is none other than the Imam, Isma`il Ibn Badran, may Allah preserve him.
 As of going to press, the doses (both and in the short form from China) have been taken by Imams such as Isma`il ibn Badran Ad-Dumi, Salih Ash-Shami and his brother `Abdur-Rahman as well as fiqh scholars like Shaikhs Faaris ibn Faalih Al-Khazraji, Mustafa Hamdu `Ulayyan, `Abdullah Badran (son of Imam Isma`il ibn Badran), Mubarak Al-Hathlaan and others. This is a clear indicator that the vaccine is not only permitted but that it’s also not poison, there is no nanotechnology in it and there is no trojan horse conspiracy. Keep in mind that most of the marja` people of the Peninsula (including Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and the UAE) have taken it. And yet there have been no mass deaths of marja` people, fiqh scholars or muftis on the back of it.
Those that have abstained have not done so due to a worldwide conspiracy plan hatched by George Soros, the Bilderbergs, CFR (Center for Foreign Relations), the Learned Elders of Zion or any other inveterate falsehood.
 Ar. darurah. This refers to the fact that the ruling of darurah is that one may carry out an action that might normally be impermissible to the most minimal degree to avert harm if it is certain beyond a reasonable doubt that he will (1) lose his life, (2) lose a limb or (3) be indefinitely detained and undergo trials that go with that. Please see Al-Futuhi’s (d.972), may Allah have mercy upon him, Mukhtasar ut-Tahrir for further details.
 This refers to the scholars of Arabia proper, including Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and the UAE.
 The reason for this is that all medicine, whether it is vaccination or herb based, does possess risks for the ones that ingest them. Everyone must know (1) the ingredients, (2) whether he has any allergies, (3) whether he has any pre-existing conditions that the vaccination or medicine could produce an adverse reaction with and (4) whether any current herbs or medicines he is taking may react negatively with what he is about to ingest. This is the standard for all medicine, whether we are discussing what is administered externally by intervention (vaccinations) or taken orally or topically for replenishment (herbs and the like). Let the reader be mindful of this fact.
 This is because it’s medicine. If it was poison it would be impermissible to take as it would neither be interventional medicine (vaccines/immunisations) or replenishment medicine (herbs and the like).
 And this most likely came about due to the explicit expression taken from Imam Mansur Al-Buhuti (d.1051), may Allah have mercy upon him, when he uttered: “So all food has been created pure and clean, which is different to what is impure and unclean. And there is no harm in these foods and no reason to hide away from them like in the case of poison, musk and things like amber, just as seeds and fruits are pure things”. Ar-Rawd ul-Murbi` bi-Sharhi Zad il-Mustaqni`, pp.520-522
 This is on account of the fact that it is not nourishment.
