Premature Ejaculation

Shortened Question:

Is it permissible to take medication containing Omega 3 to assist with a problem of premature ejaculation?


I suffer from prostrate problems which results in premature ejaculation. Occasionally I ejaculate during foreplay with my wife. The doctor has recommended certain medications which he thinks can alleviate my deficiency. Two of these medications contains gelatin. Of these one has a substitute which is suitable for vegetarians. The other which contains Omega 3 has no substitute. Is it permissible to take these medications?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
