No toothpaste during Roza, use a twig: Islamic scholars

For Muslims, using tooth paste to brush one’s teeth while fasting is not advisable. Doubts have been expressed by many Muslims whether using toothpaste would have an impact on fasting. Islamic scholars have advised that Muslims can use miswak (twig) stick to brush their teeth while fasting but they must ensure that they do not swallow the saliva thus generated.
