Rinsing out the mouth and nose while fasting

Posted By



  • If the fasting person rinses his mouth or nose out, and some water reaches his stomach, does this break his fast?


  • If the fasting person rinses out his mouth or nose, and some water enters into his stomach then it does not break his fast. This is because he did not mean for it to happen. Allah said in the Quran {There is no sin upon you for what you have done in error, but rather that which your heart has intended} (33:5).
