The ruling on using Oil

Question :

Does oil that moistens the skin harm the fast if it is of the type that prevents water from reaching the skin?


There is no harm in using body oil while fasting when there is a need. For verily, the oil only moistens the outer skin and it does not affect the inside of the body. Then, even if it is possible for it to enter the pores of the skin, it is still not considered as something that breaks the fast.
