Doing a saline nasal rinse while fasting


1. Does the fast break if a person does a saline nasal rinse/nasal irrigation whilst fasting. The salt solution goes up one nostril and out the other. Sometimes the solution comes out the mouth as well.

2. If a person didn't know the masalah and did it whilst fasting, will their fast break?


1. Yes. 

2. Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
