Rinsing the Mouth While Fasting
Assalamualaikum. I have a question regarding wudu.
Is it ok if someone performs wudu without rinsing the mouth while fasting due to fearing the water may go inside the throat and break fast?? (Hanafi)
To wash the mouth is a _sunnah_ during _wudū_’. One should not omit this sunnah of _wudū_’ but instead the scholars have advised that caution be adopted when gargling whilst fasting.
Remnants of water that remain in the mouth after gargling if swallowed will not invalidate the fast.
And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
