Doubting if one swallowed water whilst fasting

Q: I was fasting in Ramadaan and I have doubts to whether or not I swallowed water while gargling in ghusl. I’m not 100% sure if I swallowed water. Do I have to make qada? I’m not sure how many times I did ghusl and how many times or days I had this doubt. I’m not 100% sure and I can’t remember if I swallowed water.


A: If you are not sure then do not pay attention to this doubt.

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