What to do if you forget chewing gum during salaah?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Assalamu alaykum
wot does one do if he forgets that he is chewing gum and starts his salaah?
does it break his salaah?
if not, should he finish his salaah?
Break it himself and dispose of the chewing gum

if one has to break salaah for a valid reason , how does one break the salaah?
should he do salaam to both sides in whichever posture he is and break his salaah? If not, how do you do it.


Bismihi Ta’ala

If a person realises whilst in Salaah that he is chewing gum, then his Saaah must be terminated and re-started.

The manner in which one must terminate his Salaah is as follows: He must do tasleem in both directions in whichever posture he is in. It will also be terminated by doing tasleem towards one side and not the other but the first method is prefered.

And Allah knows best.
