Would this break my fast?

This Ramadhaan, I feel as though none of my fasts are being accepted.

As my husband sometimes leads salaah in the masjid, I try my best to

keep the home paak as possible.  When I am fasting, I clean my private

area as much as possible as I have discharge problem. My question is,

when it says that anything (water, medicine, wet finger) inserted into

the inner vagina, does it include the little bit muscle opening of the

vagina, as I wash it very well, and am afraid when I shower and do

istinja, that perhaps my finger does enter just a little as I am

cleaning around and in the area.  I do not insert my finger, put push

around it as I am cleaning.  Would this break my fast?



Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


The fast does not break until the moisture enters the internal part of vagina. Washing the exterior muscle will not break your fast. Do not let these unnecessary doubts get you down. If you are experiencing doubts you should recite

“Allahumma Inni A`oozubika Min Wala haan”


Pray to Allah to remove these doubts also and do not pay any attention to them.


And Allah knows best
