My mother is 75 years old. She has diabetes and high blood pressure. She takes insulin and tablet medications for her diabetes. She fasts for two days and then she eats one day. The day she fasts, she becomes in a bad condition. She does not listen to anyone and continues her fasting. She also lives in a different country. Now, Sayed, I am asking for some advice for mom and whether or not she can fast because she has all these health issues.

If fasting harms her health she is not allowed to fast. Tell her: why are you fasting? Isn’t for Allah? If it’s for Allah, He does not want you to fast if fasting harms your health. Try to make her understand that
