I was washing my mouth during fasting and got doubts whether I had saliva or water in my throat or if I had little water and it wouldn't break my fast. I'm not sure which one it is so i am now doubting myself. I am also a very doubtful person. Is my fast valid or can I make it up in the month of shawwal?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

Swallowing saliva or swallowing the residue water left in the mouth after washing will not invalidate your fast.
