Asalamualikum i wanted to know if my fast is broken in the following two scenarios and if it is what i have to do. (Qadha etc) 1. I ate food at the last moment and once the minute of fajr set in i spit out what was in my mouth and rinsed my mouth but what was in my throat which was about a bite of food not that much but bigger than a chickpea i swallowed. Meaning it was already in my throat at that point i did not think really and just swallowed it. I didn’t know what else to do if i was supposed to vomit it out or something because i know deliberate vomiting breaks fast. 2. After farj i layed down and felt some food come up in my throat, it was not much nor did it come that high that it reached my mouth, but i swallowed it back without thinking. Is my fast broken Please help me as i am very worried about this. JazakAllah khair ahsanul jaza.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

1. Qadha will be necessary.

Please view the section on ‘Ramadan and Fasting’: qa.muftisays.com/?5413

2. Your fast is intact as you didn’t deliberately swallow the food.

و” كذا لا يفطر لو “عاد” ما ذرعه “بغير صنعه ولو ملأ” القيء “فمه في الصحيح” وهذا عند محمد لأنه لم يوجد صورة الفطر وهو الابتلاع ولا معناه لأنه لا يتغذى به عادة
(حاشية الطحطاوي ص ٦٦٢)
