106451: Ruling on sitting near equipment that emits steam or smoke whilst fasting


What is the ruling on sitting during the day in Ramadaan near equipment that emits steam or smoke? If that is part of his work, what is the ruling?.

Praise be to Allaah.

There is nothing wrong with this, but he should not deliberately inhale this smoke or dust. But if anything enters his throat without him meaning it to or wanting it to, there is nothing wrong with that and it does not affect anything. End quote. 

Majmoo’ Fataawa Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, Fataawa al-Siyaam (281).
