Water entering the ears and using deodorant while fasting

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. While fasting, if a person takes a bath then, will the water entering the ears break the fast?

2. During wudhu, while doing the masah of ears, when we put our finger in the ear, will the water entering our ear break the fast?

3. After bathing will the use of deodarant (both spray and roll on) break the fast? Because it is said that the pores of the skin are open after bathing and the deodrant enters the pores thats how the smell comes when we sweat. 



1. No.

2. No.

3. No.

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