Topic: Ruling regarding the use of Miswak and toothpaste while fasting   (No-15719)

Q Assalamualaikum Mufti Sahab! What is the ruling on using a miswak while fasting? And what is the ruling on using toothpaste while fasting?

a It is permissible for a fasting person to use a miswak while fasting, irrespective of whether the miswak is dry or fresh. Even if the bitter taste of the miswak or its strong flavor is felt in the mouth, it does not affect the fast, nor does it make the fast makrooh.
Using toothpaste while fasting is makrooh due to the possibility of its particles reaching the throat. If toothpaste is ingested (goes down the throat), the fast becomes Fasid (deemed invalid).

کرہ ذوق شئ ومضغہ بلاعذر کذا في الکنزومن العذر في الأول مالوکان زوج المرأۃ وسید ہا سیئ الخق فذاقت المرقۃ ومن العذر۔ في الثاني: أن لاتجد من یضغ الطعام لصبیہا من حائض أونفساء أو غیرہما ممن لایصوم ولم تجد طبیخا ولالبنا حلیبا۔
