Benefit: Ramaḍān - The Ruling on Swallowing Saliva while Fasting
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Faṭwá Series for Ramaḍān 2016 - featuring selected faṭāwá by Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī (رحمه الله).
[A]: Swallowing saliva doesn’t break the fast, even if it is gathered [in his mouth] then swallowed, because it is something which is from the interior of his body. [Also,] it is unavoidable, like swallowing dust.
Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī (رحمه الله)
