Pearl of Wisdom

when asked by his companion Abu Ba Ir whether the spirit remains with the body during sleep or leaves it, replied, 'No, O Abu Ba Ir, verily if the spirit were to leave the body it would never again return to it. It is actually like the sun that is fixed in its place in the centre of the sky, yet its rays extend out to the earth.'

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.
