Using toothpaste during fasting


Is it permissible for a fasting person to brush his teeth during the fasting hours of Ramadan?


It is permissible to use water and toothpaste during the fasting hours of Ramadan aslong as nothing reaches the body cavity through a body orifice as this will break the fast. It is better to brush one's teeth at any time other than the fasting hours to remove oneself from Satan's whisperings.
