Questioner: Assalaamu ‘alaykum
Dr Sharof: Wa’alaykumu ssalaam
Questioner: If mucus or phlegm goes down one’s throat during Ramadaan, is the fast invalidated?
Dr Sharof: Catarrh is not the only condition that requires that mucus be released. Mucus is from the secretions wherein waste products from the foods we eat are excreted. So, if one is fasting and mucus gets to one throat, is that day’s fasting valid?
Firstly, generally when mucus gets to the mouth it is to be expelled, so you have to expel it. And that is why we should have a small piece of cloth that such mucus can be spitted into. For example, if you are in the mosque or a place where you cannot expel it on the floor, then you can expel the mucus into the piece of cloth. If you intentionally swallow it, the scholars are agreed that your fasting is invalid unlike the one who swallows saliva. One cannot live without swallowing saliva; it is not easy. The tongue and the other component of the mouth require saliva. Without saliva one will die because the tongue will not be functional. The flexibility of our discussion is because there is saliva running in the mouth. The saliva is like the grease within two iron rods. If the iron rods in a car are not well oiled, the car will not work appropriately. If you give a very lengthy discussion, it will appear as if there is no more saliva in your mouth and one may pass out. So for this reason, water is required to keep the mouth moist. That is why the Sharee’ah says swallowing saliva does not invalidate fasting. How many of it do we want to spit out? For this reason, if something is in excess, its ruling will be easy, but if it is very minute, we will be strict on its ruling. Because saliva is in excess we are allowed to swallow it, but since mucus is very minute we are asked to expel it. So if you swallow it your fasting is invalid.
However, it is to be noted that the fasting of the one who gathers saliva in his mouth excessively with the intention of swallowing it to ease his thirst is invalid. His fasting is invalid because of his intention. As for the mucus which gets to the tongue, if you swallow it intentionally, then your fasting is invalid. As for the one you swallow mistakenly, it does not render your fasting invalid. That is it.

Post it in the right section "Islam for Muslims".

AntiChristian:Antichristian, you can see the kind of mundane questions you ask yourselves which prevents you from knowing the Truth about your own religion.
What has swallowing mucus or phlegm got to do with holiness?
Are Babies unholy?
This is the kind of questions you should be asking
|Re: Ruling On Swallowing Phlegm While Fasting - Sheikh Dr Sharof Gbadebo Raaji by AntiChristian: 7:46am On Mar 22|
The rulings of Islam are derived from the texts of Islam and are to be followed!
When God asked Adam not to eat from a tree, does it have to do with holiness?
Babies don't fast/pray as they are not yet culpable of their actions! They are sinless!

AntiChristian:Can you then show me just one ayah of the Qur'an where Allah instructs you on proper ways of swallowing phlegm and mucus (with or without fast)?
Adam and Eve were given a single instruction by God and they broke it. Breaking God's law is SIN.
Who gave you the law of mucus and phlegm? Was it Allah?
When we tell you that Mohammed is pseudo-Allah, you insist on defending the undefendable!
Why did you run away from
Was the truth too hard?
Was the truth too disturbing?
Would you rather allow it to slide than for you to check your belief?
All the Hadiths presented are Sahih according to your Islamic scholars.

TenQ:Do we follow only Qur'an in Islam? Are you guys not tired of this same question?
Islam is Qur'an and Sunnah
(a) Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “He who obeys the Messenger has indeed obeyed Allaah . . .” [al-Nisaa’ 4:80] Allaah described obedience to the Prophet (peace be upon him) as being a part of obedience to Him. Then He made a connection between obedience to Him and obedience to the Prophet (peace be upon him): “O you who believe! Obey Allaah and obey the Messenger . . .” [al-Nisaa’ 4:59]
(b) Allaah warns us not to go against the Prophet (peace be upon him), and states that whoever disobeys him will be doomed to eternal Hell. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “. . . And let those who oppose the Messenger’s commandment beware, lest some fitnah (trial, affliction, etc.) befall them or a painful torment be inflicted on them.” [al-Nur 24:63]
(c) Allaah has made obedience to His Prophet a religious duty; resisting or opposing it is a sign of hypocrisy: “”But no, by your Lord, they can have no Faith, until they make you [Muhammad] judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept (them) with full submission.” [al-Nisaa’ 4:65]
(d) Allaah commands His slaves to respond to Him and His Messenger: “O you who believe! Answer Allaah (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger when he calls you to that which will give you life . . .” [al-Anfaal 8:24]
(e) Allaah also commands His slaves to refer all disputes to him: “. . . (And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allaah and His Messenger . . .” [al-Nisaa’ 4:59]
Adam and Eve were given a single instruction by God and they broke it. Breaking God's law is SIN.I think the verses above suffices!
Why did you run away fromIt's not compulsory i chook mouth everywhere i have been mentioned here!

AntiChristian:I understand your post very well. However, Mohammed is not a worthy standard of morality. Is it a case of do as I say but not as I do?
In other words, Mohammed has equal rating with Allah. Just as Allah can command you Muslims, Mohammed can command you. A violation of the command of Mohammed is SIN as that against Allah.
Can you see how Allah and Mohammed have exactly equal rating?
Unfortunately, you Muslims cherry pick too much. All the Sahih Hadiths I gave you are about the various shapes of Allah. So why are you Muslims ashamed to come out to own up to the varying shapes of Allah?
I'm sure you know that few Muslims know this. What are you hiding?
