can a person use eye drops whilst fasting


In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-raḥmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible to use eye-drops whilst fasting, the fast will not be nullified.[1] However if ear drops and nose drops is used it will nullify the fast. In this instance only Qadha will have to be made and not Kaffarah.[2]

[1] ولو أقطر شيئا من الداء في عينه لايفطر صومه عندنا وإن وجد طعمه في حلقه وإذا بزق فرأى أثر الكحل ولونه في بزاقه عامة المشايخ على أنه لايفسد صوم ; كذا في الذخيرة وهو الأصح … كذا في التبيين.

ومن احتقن أو استعط أوأقطر في أذنه دهنا أفطر ولاكفارة عليه هكذا في الهداية ولو دخل الدهن بغير صنعه فطره كذا في محيط السرخسي. (577,الفتاوى الهنديه, ج1,ص 204) [2]
