A person who is fasting should not prolong the rinsing of mouth and nose for fear of breaking the fast, says a religious scholar.

Dr Ali Ahmed Mashael, Grand Mufti at the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai (IACAD) has said that rinsing the mouth and nose is recommended but a person who is fasting should not prolong the rinsing to ensure his or her fast remains intact.
