The seventh item is: The Ear Drops: The meaning is: "pharmaceuticals" are poured in the ear; does it invalidate the fast or not? Scholars had spoken in the past about the issue of “the ruling of a person who treats himself by pouring water into his ear."
According to the majority of scholars, it invalidates the fast. According to the view of the Hanbali school of Fiqh, it invalidates the fast.
The second opinion is of Ibn Hazm, who considered it from the things that do not break the fast. His proof is: the eardrops do not reach the brain directly but it reaches through the pores.
Modern medicine demonstrates that there is no canal between the ear and the brain to bear the fluid except in one case which is if there is a hole in the eardrum. According to this, the soundest opinion is: it does not break the fast.
A case: If there is a hole in the eardrum, the treatment should be taken through the ear. In this case, it takes the same ruling of taking medicine through the nose as was previously mentioned.
The eight item is: The Ear Lotion: It takes the same ruling of the ear drop, but scholars said: If the ear drum is breached, the quantity that will enter the ear invalidates the fast.
The ear lotion is divided into two sections: 1 - If the eardrum is present, it does not break the fast. 2 - If the eardrum is breached, it invalidates the fast because the quantity of the liquid will be a lot.
