Ustadh Tabraze Azam is asked about fasting while using a contraceptive implant.
Assalam alaykum wa rahmat Allah wa baraktuh.
If one has a contraceptive implant fitted into their arm, are the fasts they keep legally valid?
Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmat Allah wa barakatuh.
Yes, your fasts are legally valid whilst you have a contraceptive implant in your arm. This is because there is no entry of a substance into your digestive system from a cavity or orifice of consequence. Such entry is required for the legal nullification of your fast.

And Allah Most High knows best.
