Salaamz, i have heard and read that if you brush your teeth whilst fasting(with toothpaste), that it does not break your fast. please could you tell me if that is true or not?


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

The fast would not break. However, it is Makruh (disliked) to do so.

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
