Does licking the lips more than once invalidate the fast?

Question:

Does licking the lips more than once invalidate the fast?

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

If one licks the lips once, and then immediately licks them again, this does invalidate one�s fast.

It says in the Reliance of the Traveller, i1.18:

�Each of the following things invalidates the day�s fast when one knows they are unlawful (A: during an obligatory fast) and remembers one is fasting (A: but does them deliberately anyway); and they obligate one to both make up the fast-day later and fast the remainder of that day:

11) swallowing saliva that has left the mouth, such as when threading a needle and one moistens the end of the thread, and then remoistens it, swallowing some of the saliva, that the thread had been previously wetted with;�

And Allah knows best.
