My question is about the smell that comes from Vicks [i.e., Vicks Vaporub, used externally to relieve headaches]. Does it have any substance that reaches the stomach when I apply the Vicks in the area of the forehead and nose whilst fasting?.
Praise be to Allaah.
The smell that comes from Vicks does not have any effect on the fast, because it is simply a smell that has no substance that can reach the stomach.
