Dissolvable tablets under the tongue

Fatwaa ID: 1089

السلام علیکم و رحمة الله و بركاته
Hadhrat Mufti Saheb
If a person has dissolve able tablets under his tongue and reads namaz in this condition, what is the ruling?
Jzkl khair

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

In principle, if food, medicine or other particles go down the throat while performing salaah, then that will invalidate the salaah. Dissolvable tablets melt when they come in contact with saliva and/or liquid. Accordingly, keeping them under the tongue will definitely make them dissolve and particles would go down the throat. Thus, salaah will be invalidated.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
