A fasting person dips his head into sea water
Fatwa No: 78204


If a fasting person dips his head into sea water, will this affect the validity of his fasting?


All perfect praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

If a fasting person sinks his head in water and nothing reaches his throat, then his fasting remains valid. However, the Muslim, while fasting, should avoid all that which may invalidate his fasting. He should stay away from such practices unless necessary.

Allaah Knows best.
