Fatwa ID: 05275


Answered by: Mufti Muhammad Afzal Hussain




Salaam Alaikum. Does fast break if a person swallows phlegm? What if the phlegm comes to the mouth then swallowed?  Please let me know.
Jazak Allah Khairan.

According to Imam Abu Hanifah, swallowing phlegm does not break the fast. (Badaaius Sanaai p.90 v.2)
