Please when fasting and you put on lipgloss after spiting some because you felt some enter your mouth then you still felt some and it had a bitter taste and it was already missed in your saliva and you just swallowed it deliberately. Then you regret it and is scared if your fast is invalid. Please is your fasting valid


Wa’alaykum as Salām wa rahmatullāhi wa barakātuhu,

If the lip gloss was known to have mixed with the saliva and was subsequently swallowed instead of being spat out, then the fast will break.

Such a fast which was deliberately broken would be made up in the following manner:

To fast for 60 days consecutively on such days where one is permitted to fast.

However, if a person is unable to fulfil fast in the aforementioned manner due to a valid excuse such as it being detrimental to one’s health, then to substitute the practice of fasting by feeding the poor in lieu of each day’s meal which is equivalent to the value of the Ṣadaqah Al-Fiṭr.
