Does changing mouth smell break the fast?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.


All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.


 Thank you for your good question. May you have a happy and blessed Ramadan, ameen.


If you refer to brushing your teeth, using miswak, and/or using mouthwash during fasting, it’s OK, but don’t swallow anything. You may also rinse your mouth with water during the fasting hours without overdoing it.


Amir ibn Rabiyyah (may Allah be pleased him) narrated: “I saw Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) using miswak while he was fasting many times that I couldn’t count.” (Al-Bukhari)


May Allah accept your and our good deeds, ameen.


Allah Almighty knows best.
