Cupping when fasting

Question

I would like to know the reference for the following narration:

Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) was asked: “Did you dislike cupping for the fasting person [during the time of Nabi sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam]?” He said, ‘No, except for the reason of one becoming weak.'”

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration in his Sahih.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1940)

 

Note: Kindly contact a Mufti/Darul Ifta for a fatwa on this issue.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
