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.
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
According to Imam Abu Hanifah, swallowing phlegm does not break the fast. (Badaaius Sanaai p.90 v.2)
