Nasal Spray whilst fasting

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwaa.com

Slmz,

Can we use a nasal spray whilst fasting?

Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

Since the nose is a channel to both, the the troat and the brain, using a nasal spray will nullify the fast.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best

Wassalaam,

Ismail Moosa (Mufti)
