So swimming while fasting is one of the activities people don't like to do especially in Ramadan when it's hot and it's in the summer. So therefore, they wonder Is it okay? Can I swim? What if water coming into my mouth and what do I do with this? Does it break my fast and so forth?
Well, swimming in general does not break your fast what breaks the fast is actually drinking the water. So therefore, if people want to swim, like in the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he recommended when we make will do that we make our lives so thorough, and even when it comes to rinsing
our mouth and blow your nose. He said balance which means you know, just excessively clean your mouth and clean your nose, nostrils, he says unless Allah and takuna Simon unless you're fasting, which means you need to be careful not to not allow the water to go through and into your throat all the way down to your stomach. So if this is about what do what about fasting What about swimming them so when it comes to swimming, if people guarantee that while they swim, they make sure as much as possible to keep their heads above the water or they put their heads into the water that they make sure that it don't don't actually read the water in any way and it should be fine. So they
basically they can swim, but like it will do you take extra precaution. You should define a charlatan to go with that.
