الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

In severe pain, there is scope for use of such medicines, as prescribed by the doctors. But the condition is that those medicines do not contain alcoholic addiction. 

قال الشامی :  تحت قول الدر  ’’ ویحرم اکل البنج والحشیشۃ والافیون واکل السقمونیا ۔ والبنج مباح للتداوی ، وما زاد علی ذلک اذا کان یقتل او یذھب العقل حرام۔(رد المحتار: ۵/۳۰۳)

فقط واللہ اعلم واتم
