Topic: Ingesting Inedible Items while Fasting   (No-15791)

Q What is the ruling regarding the fast of a person who ingests an inedible item while fasting?

aIf something that is not normally consumed as a food or medicine is ingested such as paper, fruit seeds etc, then the fast will be deemed invalid and only qaza becomes obligatory, not kaffarah.
However, if a flying insect (such as a housefly), smoke, or dust, enters the throat involuntarily, the fast remains valid, even if it reaches the stomach, as it is difficult to avoid these things. Similarly, when a person crushes a medicine or something else, and its flavour or fumes are felt in the throat, the same ruling applies, and the fast remains valid.


الھندیة: (کتاب الصوم ، الباب الرابع فیما یفسد وما لایفسد، 203/1، ط: زکریا)

ومالیس بمقصود بالأکل ولا یمکن الا حتراز عنہ کالزباب إذا وصل إلیٰ جوف الصائم لم یفطرہٗ - ولو دخل حلقہ غبار الطاحونۃ أو طعم الأدویۃ أو غبار الہرس وأشباہہ أو الدخان أو ماسطع من غبار التراب بالریح أو بحوافر الدواب وأشباہ ذلک لم یفطرہ کذا فی السراج الوہاج الدموع إذا دخلت فم الصائم إن کان قلیلاً کالقطرۃ والقطرتین أو نحوہا لایفسد صومہ ۔
