Pearl of Wisdom

That the scholar [al-Sadiq] (AS) was once asked about why a man may wake up in the morning feeling sad without knowing the reason for his sorrow. He said, 'If that happens to him then he should know that his brother is in sorrow, and similarly if he wakes up happy without a specific reason for that joy. And Allah's help do we seek with regard to the rights of the brothers.'

Subject: brushing teeth during fasting
Question: How can i explain brushing my teeth during fasting to our brothers from the Sunni school of thought?
Answer: Salaam alaykum,

Well, the thing that breaks our fast is not putting food or, in your example, toothpaste into our mouth. Rather, what breaks the fast is intentionally swallowing the food. So, if one is able to brush his teeth without allowing any toothpaste to reach his throat then he has not swallowed anything, hence his fast remains intact.
