Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
What is the ruling on taking a bath more than one time during the day in Ramadaan, or sitting beside an air conditioner that spreads wetness?.

Praise be to Allaah.
That is permissible and there is nothing wrong with it. The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to pour water on his head because of heat or thirst when he was fasting, and Ibn ‘Amr used to wet his clothes with water when he was fasting, to reduce the severity of heat or thirst. Dampness or wetness does not affect the fast because it is not water that reaches the stomach. End quote.
Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him).
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
