Question 13: What is the ruling on using the following things during the day in the month of Ramadan:
- the siwak
- tooth paste
Answer: As for using the siwak made from roots, then there is no problem is doing this, even if it is green. As for tooth paste, I would advise that this is left off during the month of Ramadan. I do not have a proof that informs that the usage of tooth paste breaks the fast, but (if one does decide to use it) he/she should be very careful that it does not enter the stomach. The Messenger -salaahu alaahe wa saleem- said:
"... and perform the istinshak (pulling the water into the nose during abulution) strongly, except if one is fasting" This is because, if one is fasting, it is feared that the water will enter into the stomach. http://www.sahab.
