Fatwa ID: 03297
Answered by: Maulana Tahsin Alam
Can we do perineum physiotherapy while fasting, as we have to use an intravaginal device for that purpose as well as an ultrasound transmission gel?
Will the insertion of that device and the gel break the fast?
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
It is permissible as long as the gel does not reach one’s intestines.
Only Allah SWT alone knows best
