I put eye drops in my eyes and I forgot I was fasting. I felt the taste of the eye drops in my mouth and throat. Is my fast broken?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
The application of eye drops in one’s eyes does not invalidate the fast, even if the taste of the eye drops can be felt in the mouth and throat. A substance with a discernable body must enter a valid entry point to potentially break the fast. The eye is not a valid entry point.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
