A: 

  1. It is permissible.
  2. If the moist finger was inserted slightly, the fast will not break. However, if the moist finger reached the place where the enema is inserted, the fast will break.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.

قال في الدر المختار ولو بالغ في الاستنجاء حتى بلغ موضع الحقنة فسد و هذا قلما يكون ولو كان فيورث داء عظيما اه قال الشامي ثم في بعض النسخ المحقنة بالميم و هي أولى قال في الفتح و الحد الذي يتعلق بالوصول إليه الفساد قدر المحقنة اه أي قدر ما يصل إليه رأس المحقنة التي هي آلة الاحتقان و على الأول فالمراد الموضع الذي ينصب منه الداء إلى الأمعاء اه (رد المحتار 2/397)
