===========================================================

QUESTION:

Asalaam Alaaykum

I have a question on fasting:
Someone has the habit of chewing on the inside of the cheek (inside 
the mouth) and does it frequently and usually unconsciously.  Often 
a small portion of the skin of the inside of the cheek comes off and 
is swallowed.

Does this habit violate the fasts of this person when it is done
unconsciously?  What is the case for the fasts of previous years for this
person?

Thankyou

ANSWER:

Salaamun 'alaykum,

Unless an extraneous element goes under the throat, fasting is not 
invalidated. Skin should not be swallowed, however, if it is done 
unintentionally then the fast is valid. The fasts of previous years are ok.

With salaams and du'as

Liyakatali Takim
