Swallowing phlegm while fasting

Egypt's Dar Al-Ifta

Swallowing phlegm while fasting


Does phlegm invalidate fasting, keeping in mind that it is a big inconvenience? Does swallowing it invalidate prayer?


There is a well-known opinion that swallowing phlegm does not invalidate fasting, just as it does not invalidate prayer (if swallowed during prayer.)
And God Almighty knows best.
