نبذة في الصيام A Brief about Fasting

Things that break one’s fasting

Persons’ fasting is not broken if they do one of the things which break their fast, while they are ignorant or forgetting. Allah Almighty, says:
{رَبَّنَا لاَ تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِن نَّسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا} [البقرة: 286]،
“Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred.” [Al- Baqarah 2:286]

Allah, the All Mighty, says:
{إِلاَّ مَنْ أُكْرِهَ وَقَلْبُهُ مُطْمَئِنٌّ بِالإِيمَانِ} [النحل: 106]
“except for one who is forced [to renounce his religion] while his heart is secure in faith.” [Al Nahal 16:106]

His saying:
{وَلَيْسَ عَلَيْكُمْ جُنَاحٌ فِيمَا أَخْطَأْتُم بِهِ وَلَكِن مَّا تَعَمَّدَتْ قُلُوبُكُمْ} [الأحزاب: 5]
” And there is no blame upon you for that in which you have erred but [only for] what your hearts intended.” [Al-Ahzab 33:5]

If the fasting person eats or drinks forgetting, or if he eats thinking that, the sun has set or the dawn has not broken, his fasting will not be nullified because he is ignorant of the incidence.

If the fasting person rinses his mouth with water and it accidently reaches his throat, his fasting will not be nullified, because he did not do this deliberately.

If he discharged semen (wet dreaming) unintentionally while he was sleeping, his fasting will not be nullified.
