Does vomit break fast
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
There are five things which will break or invalidate the fast:
- Sexual intercourse
- voluntary semen discharge
- the menstruation of the woman while fasting
Al-Muwatta Hadith 18.47
Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafi that Abdullah ibn Umar used to say, "If some one makes himself vomit while he is fasting he has to make up a day, but if he cannot help vomiting he does not have to make up anything."
Involuntary vomiting does not break or invalidate the fast; but in the opinion of the noble companion of the Prophet (saws), Hadrat Abdullah ibn Umar (r.a.), if a fasting person vomits voluntarily, then his fast would be invalid and he has to make up the fast at a later date.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
