Problems related to Fasting


Problem: Fasting after eating Suhoor and delaying Suhoor, and hastening Iftar is recommended. Fasting is done without suhoor, but skipping suhoor without an excuse is not contrary to the sunnah. (Mustafad, Fatawi Dar Uloom)

Iftar with calean

The problem is if he breaks his fast with Huqqa, beerhi, paan, etc., then Iftar becomes correct but not better. (Fatawa Dar Uloom)

Iftar of a non-Muslim

Problem: It is permissible and correct to break the fast with a non-Muslim. (Fatawa Dar Uloom)

Maghrib Jama’at in Ramadan:

Problem: In Ramadan, it is better to delay the Jama’at after Maghrib Adhan to such an extent that the fasting person can eat and attend the Jama’at satisfactorily. Therefore, delaying ten to twelve minutes after the adhan is preferable. (Fatawa Darul Uloom)

Fajr Jama’at in Ramadan

Problem: There is no problem in offering the Fajr prayer earlier in Ramadan because more people attend the Jama’at at an earlier time, and if it is prayed after it is light, many people miss the Jama’at. (Fatawa Dar Uloom)

Injection while fasting

Problem: If something is injected to the fasting person’s body through the pores in the veins, it does not invalidate the fast. Therefore, the injection does not cause any damage to the fast. (Fatawa Mahmoudiyah)

Fasting glucose

The problem is that fasting does not break the fast by injecting glucose. (Fatawa Mahmoudiyah)

Applying medicine on piles

It is permissible to apply medicine on piles, and it does not invalidate the fast. But it is not permissible to insert it with an instrument, but only to apply it to external warts. (Dur Mukhtar)

Pouring oil or medicine in the ear

Problem: Pouring oil and medicine in the ear while fasting invalidates the fast, but reaching water does not invalidate the fast. (Dur Mukhtar)

Nasal medicine

Problem: Putting medicine in the nose and giving water breaks the fast, and similarly if it reaches the throat, the fast is broken. Therefore, one should not exaggerate gargling and inhaling in Ghusl Janabat. (Fatawa Rahimi)

Applying oil to the head

Applying oil to the head while fasting does not break the fast. (Qadi)

Medicine in the eye

There is no harm in fasting by putting medicine in the eye, and by applying Surma, the fast remains even if its effect is not felt in the throat. (Maraqi)

Miswak fibre

Problem: If its fibres enter the throat and reach the stomach while brushing, the fast is not invalid. (Ahsan al-Fatawa)

Bleeding gums

Of course, if blood comes out of the gums and enters the throat, it has two forms. If the saliva is equal to or more than the blood and the taste of blood is felt in the throat, then the fast will be invalid, and if the blood is less, then it will not be invalid. (Dur Mukhtar)

Envelope glue

Problem: If one licks the glue of the envelope with the tongue and spits it out, then the fast will not be invalidated, and if it comes out without saliva, then the fast will be invalidated. (Dur Mukhtar)

Smoke of incense stick

If he burns yaqi and frankincense etc. and smells it with him, then it makes the fast irregular, but if he does not smell it but enters without authority, then the fast will not be irregular. Therefore, it is better to avoid burning incense etc. in mosques on Fridays etc. on the occasion of Ramadan. (Dar Mukhtar)

The smoke of the shackles

The problem is that drinking huqqa and beerhi while fasting invalidates the fast. Qada is necessary, not Kaffarah.

Keep the medicine in the mouth

Problem: If medicine is applied in the mouth during fasting due to a severe disease, it is permissible without reluctance and it is abominable without necessity. (Dar Mukhtar)

Manjan in fasting

Problem: It is makruh to apply manjan, tooth paste, dandasa, etc. during fasting and they should be avoided. (Ahsan al-Fatawa)

Drawing blood during fasting

The problem is that drawing blood while fasting does not invalidate the fast, and if there is a risk of such a sight that the strength of the fast will not remain, then it is makruh. (Ahsan al-Fatadi)

Tooth extraction during fasting

Problem: It is permissible to extract teeth when necessary, and it is makruh without need. (Ahsan al-Fatawi)

Applying lipstick on lips

Problem: Applying red on the lips of a woman while fasting does not cause any damage to the fast. But if there is a possibility of it reaching inside the mouth, it is makruh. (Ahsan al-Fatawi)

Entertaining with your wife while fasting

Problem: Kissing and lying with one’s wife while fasting is permissible for a man who is not in danger of ejaculation or sexual intercourse. Therefore, it is permissible for an old man to not complain and what is abominable for those who are not able to control themselves. (Dur Mukhtar)


The problem is that if only mucus and secretions come out while kissing the wife, then it does not effect to the fast. (Ahsan al-Fatawa)

Ejaculation: If you have not had regular sexual intercourse with your wife during the fast, but only because of kissing or lying together, then the fast will be invalid, and it will be obligatory to make up one fast later. Kaffarah will not be required. And if we had sexual intercourse regularly, then Kaffarah would be obligatory as well as Qadha. But it will not be permissible to eat or drink on that day. (Imad al-Fatawi)

Wet dream

Problem: If the dream is disturbed while sleeping in the state of fasting, then there is no problem in fasting.

Forgetful eating

Problem: If one does not remember his fast at all and eats or drinks carelessly or has intercourse with his wife and remembers later, then there will be no effect on the fast. Rather, fasting will continue. (Hidaya)

Ejaculation by sight

Problem: If by chance a beautiful woman is seen in the state of fasting and then ejaculates due to sight, then the fast will not be irregular, although it is not permissible to take care of the woman seen. (Hidaya)

Water goes into the throat

Problem: If water goes down the throat while performing ablution etc., then it invalidates the fast. Qaza is obligatory, not expiation, but then it is also not permissible to eat for the whole day. (Hidaya)

Fidya of fasting

Problem: If a person becomes very old and weak and does not have the strength to fast, it is permissible to pay fidya for fasts for the weak. (Fatawa)

Fidya of a pregnant and weak woman

Problem: For a pregnant and weak woman or a sick person, it is not enough to give fidya for fasts and if fidya is given, then it will be necessary to keep it again after recovery. (Fatawa Dar Uloom)

Amount of Fidya

The amount of fidya is to give one Sadaqah Fitr or its value to the poor in exchange for each fast and the amount of one Sadaqah Fitr is half a Saa of wheat, which is 640 mg from one and a half kilos according to current times. .

Problem: It is permissible to give the fidya of one day to several poor people and similarly it is permissible to give the fidya of several fasts to one poor person. (Fatawa Rahimi)
