Swallowing phlegm break fast?


Does swallowing phlegm break the fast?


From Dar al-Fatwa al-Misriyya (The Fatwa Council of Egypt):

“There is a well-known opinion that swallowing phlegm does not invalidate fasting, just as it does not invalidate prayer if swallowed in the midst of prayer.

And Allah Most High knows best”
