Dear Sheikh, I am OCD about fasting related issues. One issue that comes up a lot is that my lips get dry while fasting and sometimes there are very tiny 1 or 2 pieces of dried skin in the corners of my lips. They are so tiny that if I lick my lips, I would not be able to tell anything went in my mouth. Would this break the fast? Jazakallah for your time.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

If your not sure that anything went in then your fast hasn’t broken.

And Allah knows best
