Question

dear brothers, i have a question
regarding ingestion in prayer. Suppose i
ate before the prayer and washed my
mouth properly before i start the
prayer, but then during the prayer
some tiny particles are still present in
the mouth, especially when i eat beef,
chicken etc, some part get stuck
between the teeth, which is
unintentional, does that cause the
prayer to be invalid? Lately this has
happened i ended up redoing all the
prayers that i prayed in that state.
Please advise.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.

If food remains between the teeth, then
this does not invalidate the prayer if
the praying person did not swallow it
during the prayer. If you mean that you
swallowed it while praying, then if it is
small and not a solid substance and it
may go down with the saliva, then this
does not invalidate the prayer as this is
difficult to spit out.

On the other hand, if it has a
dimension and the praying person
swallowed it intentionally, and not out
of forgetfulness, then the prayer
becomes void because he ate (while
praying). The jurists stated that
if a praying person "takes out from
between his teeth something that is not
a solid substance and he swallows it,
then his prayer becomes void. Their
evidence is that it is not difficult to
avoid that…"

Allah Knows best.
