Does using toothpaste invalidate one’s fast?

Answered by Shaykh Amjad Rasheed

Does using toothpaste invalidate one’s fast?

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Using toothpaste does not invalidate one’s fast unless some of it reaches the body cavity.

[Thus, one should exercise due precaution, and try to avoid using toothpaste while fasting. If one uses it, one should rinse out one’s mouth properly.]
