For a fast of Ramadhan, I had a little bit of food left in my throat when subha saadiq began. As I had realised the time had sent in, I gargled my mouth thoroughly and tried to remove any food left in my throat. However, it still felt like a small part of the food was left in my throat but I could not remove it as it was already on its way down. Is my fast still valid or will I have to make qadhaa?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

You continue to fast the day but you will have to make up this fast as Qadha.

أو سحر أو جامع شاكا في طلوع الفجر وهو طالع لا كفارة عليه للشبهة لأن الأصل بقاء الليل و يأثم إثم ترك التثبت مع الشك اه
