    Title: Regarding Bad Mouth Breathe while fasting

    Question: My question is that how can a person avoid bad mouth breathe while fasting other than miswak, because even miswak is not able to stop bad breath? I have to use mouth fresheners in Non Ramadan to avoid bad breathe, Please help me as I do not want other people (whom I am talking with) to suffer because of my bad breathe.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1343/838/L=1433) The bad smell of mouth shall vanish by cleaning the teeth, but the smell due to fast is from stomach and there is no need to remove it. This smell is dearer to Allah than musk. It is mentioned in hadith in detail. Do not use such thing to remove the bad smell of mouth, it may nullify the fast.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
