As Salaamu Alaikum WW

Respected Mufti

1-A person was crying in Dua.A few tears entered his mouth and he spat it out,though the salty taste remained in his mouth.Is his fast valid?

2-If a tear was accidently inhaled through the nasal passage,was his fast broken?

3-A haadfiha was reciting her Dhor in Taraweeh.In her 2nd Rakaat she recited 1 verse and went blank.Not knowing what to do, she recited Bismillah and recited another Surah eg: surah Ikhlas, and thereafter completed her Salaah.Was her Salaah valid? If not,should she repeat the 2 rakaats of Taraweeh?

Jazakallahu Khairan
