Applying surma while fasting

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Does it invalidate or nullify the fast if you apply surma and sleep during the day?


A: It will not nullify the fast.

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

( إذا أكل الصائم أو شرب أو جامع ) حال كونه ( ناسيا ) … ( أو ادهن أو اكتحل أو احتجم ) وإن وجد طعمه في حلقه … ( أو بقي بلل في فيه بعد المضمضة وابتلعه مع الريق ) كطعم أدوية … ( لم يفطر ) جواب الشرط (الدر المختار 2/ 394-400)
