Oil Pulling for Dental Issues. Is Fasting Impacted?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


I have some dental issues and I’m required to do oil pulling twice a day…I would like to know if my fast will be valid if I do oil pulling by making sure I don’t swallow the oil? I tried doing it after iftar and before Sheree but it did not work as well last year. I don’t want anymore gum problem while I’m fasting. Please advise.

الجواب وبالله التوفيق 

If you are certain that the remnants of the oil would absolutely not reach the throat then using it will not break the fast.  

واللہ اعلم  بالصواب
