    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1205/935/D=10/1434) Fast does not break due to cutting hair, bleeding or touching one’s wife. Fast shall break if water entered into the throat as a result of gargling. Fast breaks if something goes into the stomach or brain through mouth, ears and nose. Likewise, if something goes inside through alimentary canal such as oil and medicine etc then fast shall break.
