Ghusal and istinjaa while fasting

Question ID: 26739

Assalamu alaykum,

I am a Muslim male.

1) During Ramadaan when one is fasting,one has to observe certain rules when performing istinja .If I wash myself thoroughly then I feel that my fast has broken on account of water and my wet finger entering the posterior/anus.On the other hand,if I do not wash myself properly then I do not achieve proper taharat.Please explain me briefly the masail of istinja during fasting so I can avoid waswasa.

2)When one is fasting and has to take a fardh ghusl,then during ghusl must the water reach the upper soft part of nose? If not,must nose be re-washed thoroughly after maghrib time?

3)During fasting when one is taking a fardh ghusl,so when rinsing the mouth must water reach the throat.If not,must the mouth be re-rinsed after maghrib so that water reaches the throat?

4)If one swims while one is fasting,water does go in the posterior/anus of a person. Doesn’t that break the fast?

5) if water enters the penis does that break thefast?

6)Does water entering the ears break the fast?

7)Does water entering the eyes break the fast?

8)Does water entering the navel break the fast?
