Fatwa ID: 03297

Answered by: Maulana Tahsin Alam​

Question

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 

 

Answer

 

It is permissible as long as the gel does not reach one’s intestines.[1]
