Can a person use lip balm while fasting?

Assalamuaykum. Hope you are well.


I want to know if it’s permissible to use lip balm or chopstick whilst one is fasting?



Wa Alaikum Assalaam,

الجواب و بالله التوفيق

Yes, it is permissible to use these. However, one must not allow the taste/substance of these go in his mouth.

And Allah Knows Best.
