Brush and watch TV in Ramadhan

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)



one of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

can we brush during the fast? can we watch television during the holy month of ramadan?


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Brush and watch TV in Ramadhan

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Your comment: can we brush during the fast?

There is no harm if one brushes his teeth during the fast; but one must make sure that nothing goes down the throat, as that would invalidate the fast.


Your comment: can we watch television during the holy month of ramadan?

The watching of television has nothing to do with the month of Ramadan. During or after Ramadan, a believer must make sure that he/she chooses to watch only the good programs which are free of evil or indecency.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
