Salam, I’ve got ulcers in the mouth which is painful, visited the dentist given a mouthwash to relieve the pain I am enquiring can I use mouthwash while am Fasting.
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
It is considered Makruh to use mouthwash while you are fasting. ( Radul Mukhtar v.3 p.367 and p.373 Print Darul -Alamul-Kutub Riyaad)
Only Allah knows best.
