SeekersHub Answers | Is It Permissible to Avoid Inhaling Water in Nose for Wudu While Fasting?

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: As salam alaykum,

When fasting I don’t inhale water into my nose during wudu, I just wash my nose by putting water into it without inhaling it. Is it ok?

Also are my previous fasts valid as before I always sniffed water when doing wudu?

Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,

I pray that this message finds you well, insha’Allah.

Yes, your previous fasts are valid.

In general, it is a sunna to exaggerate the washing of the [mouth and] nose. However, this is not the case when fasting due to the fear of vitiating your fast.

The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “Exaggerate in washing the nose except if you are fasting.” [Abu Dawud]

[Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah]
