Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Does the blood that comes out from between the teeth accidentally invalidate the fast or not? What if it does caused by the person himself, rather it is caused by another person hitting him by mistake? Please advise us, may Allaah reward you.

Praise be to Allaah.
The blood that comes out from between the teeth does not invalidate the fast, whether it comes out by itself or because of another person hitting him.
And Allaah is the source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his family and companions.
Al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah li’l-Buhooth al-‘Ilmiyyah wa’l-Ifta, 10/267
But it is haraam for the fasting person to swallow this blood; if he swallows it deliberately then his fast is broken.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
