Soapy and oily water going into the ear while fasting

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q:

1) When we are fasting, if oily water goes inside the ear when we are taking a bath, will our fast break and should we keep qadha fast?

2) When we are fasting if soap water goes inside the ear when we are taking a bath will our fast break and should we keep khaza fast?

3) When we are fasting how to prevent soap water, oily water, soap and oily water from going inside ear when we are taking bath will our fast break and should we keep qadha fast?

Bismillaah

A:

1. It seems quite far-fetched that oily water gets into the ear. However, if it’s a genuine situation then the fuqaha generally go by the substance that is dominant. If the oil is more than the water then it will break the fast.

2. Generally the water is dominant.

3. Soap water does not get into the ear normally. Don’t have unnecessary doubts.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
