Is it permissible for a person to rinse out his mouth to reduce the dryness of his mouth, especially in hot countries?

السؤال : هل يجوز للصائم أن يتمضمضَ لتقليل جفاف فمه خصوصاً في البلاد الحارة ؟

الجواب : نعم يجوز له ذلك ، لكن ليتنبه من وصول شيء من ماء المضمضة إلى الجوف فإنه مبطلٌ للصوم ولو لم يبالغ في المضمضة ؛ لأنها أمرٌ غير مطلوب .

Yes, it is permissible. But, he should be careful about any water reaching his body cavity, for that would break his fast, even if he doesn’t exaggerate in his rinsing, because this is an action that is not required.
