I fast during Ramadan but mine problem is that I keep on spitting all the day. Whole mouth fills up automatically with saliva and I have to spit again and again. When I sleep then also saliva comes out of my mouth in sleep. Is my sawm (fast) valid? It is difficult to offer namaz also. On next Sunday I have exams can I skip the fast on that day. Please guide me and is there any cure for spitting.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم (Fatwa: 1193/1246/L=11/1437) You need not spit out repeatedly. Fast does not break by taking in the saliva of the mouth. Your fast is valid. If fasting has become fardh on you then you cannot break it due to exam. Allah knows Best! Darul Ifta,Darul Uloom Deoband Source

I fall vomiting between fast (sawm). It was full out from mouth as 4 to 5 times. So please clear this doubt that my fast is safe or not. I confirmed it from many Mufti and Maulana. Some say that fast is safe and some say it is not safe. So please clear this according to hadith and Quran.
