Eye drops when fasting
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
There are five things which will break or invalidate the fast:
- Intentional eating
- Intentional drinking
- Sexual intercourse
- voluntary semen discharge
- the menstruation of the woman while fasting
The scholars and jurists in Islam are unanimous in their opinion that the application of eye-drops or eye-tubes for the ailment in ones eyes do not effect the validity of ones fast in the least.and Allah Alone Knows Best.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
