Does Brushing Teeth Break the Fast?


Will brushing your teeth break your fast?


Praise be to Allah.

If toothpaste does not get into the throat, then the fast is not broken. However, it would be better to use toothpaste at night and to use Siwak in the day time.

May Allah guide us to His obedience!
