The administration of the Covid-19 vaccine is permissible in Islam and does not invalidate fasting, the UAE Fatwa Council has confirmed.

The Council had a virtual discussion over the Fiqh of fasting, including the guidelines and regulations derived from the rulings in the Holy Qur’an and the traditions of the Prophet Mohammad, official news agency WAM reported.

The council also reviewed the religious rulings in regard to the precautionary measures in place to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, primarily related to the arrangements of Iftar meals and Ramadan tents as well as Al Taraweeh prayers.

The country’s health ministry confirmed on April 2, that 100,080 doses of the vaccine were given in the past 24 hours. This scaled the total doses provided up to today to 8,491,382 with a rate of vaccine distribution of 85.85 doses per 100 people.

Meanwhile, with the detection of 2,180 new infections on Friday, the total number of recorded cases in the UAE has risen to 465,939. The death toll has also grown to 1,502.
