The fasting person who swallows dust with his saliva while performing Tayammum

Q 3: What is the ruling on the fasting person who swallows dust while performing Tayammum (dry ablution with clean earth)?

A: The Sawm (Fast) remains valid as long as they do not swallow the dust deliberately. This is based on the general meaning of the Hadiths which excuse unintentional actions committed by individuals of the Muslim Ummah (nation based on creed) as well as actions which they do under duress. The same applies to swallowing one's saliva after performing Wudu' (ablution).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
