Oral Bleeding Whilst Fasting
Q: I filled a tooth yesterday and today I have noticed some bleeding whilst fasting. What is the ruling in relation to such oral bleeding? Is it permissible to swallow that saliva which has blended with such blood? What ought I to do? What is the ruling in relation to fasting under such circumstances?
A: Assuming there are no (visible) traces of blood within one’s saliva, the latter will be deemed pure; hence, swallowing it is unproblematic and won’t invalidate one’s fast.
