as-Salam alaykum Beloved Shaykhs,
I have a habit of applying lip balm because my lips get dry a lot. Sometimes I forget I’m fasting and apply lip balm. Does this break my fast? Should I hide my lip balm to help me remember not to apply any when I’m fasting, or is it actually OK to apply it?
wa `alaykum salam,
Your fast is valid provided nothing goes down the throat.
