USING TOOTHPASTE WHILE FASTING

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

QUESTION:

As Salaamu Alaikum,
When fasting, is one allowed to use toothpaste if they are concerned with mouth odours when dealing with people that they work with?

 

ANSWER:

Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

If one uses toothpaste while observing the fast, then there is the possibility that the toothpaste may go down the throat. If this happens, then the fast will be broken. It is for this reason, the scholars have stated that one should not use it while in the state of fasting. However, if you can make sure that this does not happen to you, then you can use toothpaste.
