Fatwa ID: 05900
Answered by: Shaykh Ahmed Bin Mohamed Umarji
What was the final resolution on the steam bath breaking the fast? Would humidified CPAP come under that?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Inhaling steam will break the fast.1
Humidified CPAP will fall under the same ruling. patients who cannot fast due to their health conditions should remain confident that Allah ﷻ will grant them their full reward on account of the sincerity of their intentions and by accepting the compensation (fidya) they offer instead.
Only Allah knows best
