Food in mouth during salaah

Fatwaa ID: 789

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله و بركاته
I Make dua Moulana is well

  1. If one perceives a taste in the throat due to remanence of food stuck in the teeth (without swallowing any particles), would the salāh break?
  2. If there is a particle of food moving around the mouth for the duration of Salāh which one cannot perceive any taste from nor does he chew on it eg. A sesame seed, does the Salāh become invalid?

May الله swt keep you’ll with āfiyah

جزاكم الله خيرا

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

  1. The salaah will be valid in the enquired situation.
  2. The salaah will be valid in this enquired situation. It will be advisable for him to remove it from his mouth with minimal movement.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
