assalamu alaikum
I suffer with asthma/breathing problems throughout the day as I am under the impression the a asthma inhaler/pump will invalidate the fast.
I did recently did some research and found that many scholars say that using the inhaler does not invalidate the fast as it is a vaporizer used to facilitate ones breathing tracts and does not reach ones stomach.The drug inside an inhaler, goes straight into the airways; while the airways are treated, non or very little of the drug itself gets into the rest of the body. This being the case
it is perfectly comparable to rinsing the mouth with water or gargling, brushing the teeth, or using eye or ear drops; such actions should never be reckoned as consumption of foods or drinks.
Please comment
Jazakallah

Using the inhaler breaks the fast. If used whilst fasting, then one will make only Qadha/Qaza.
