Question # 13-43: Can we use the “Miswak” while fasting?


Can we use the “Miswak” while fasting?


In the name of Allah, The Most Merciful,

Yes, we can use it but, we have to make sure that no saliva goes through your throat. According to the Hadith of the Prophet (s.w.a.) that says:”Because I know it is difficult for my Umah other way I would command them to use the miswak every salat".

Allah knows best.
