Pearl of Wisdom

replied to a man who said, 'Sit down so we can debate about religion' ?O you, I am aware of my religion, and my path is clear for me. So, if you are ignorant about your religion then go and seek it. What do I have to do with disputation?! Indeed the devil tempts a person and calls him, saying, 'Debate with people regarding their religion so that they do not think of you as incapable and ignorant.?

Imam Hussain ibn Ali al-Shahid [as]
Ibid. v. 2, p. 135, no. 32

Question : #116 Category: Shia Sunni Dialogue
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.
