Gargling the mouth in wudhu


1. After making wudhu/rinsing the mouth, the saliva of a fasting person is extremely ‘wet,’ as though there is some residue of water left. Despite spitting out the saliva numerous times, the excessive ‘wetness’ remains for a long period. Does swallowing such type of saliva invalidate the fast?

2. If so, is Qadha or Kaffaarah necessary?


A: No

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
