What 10 Things Will Break Your Fast During Ramadan?
If you list the things that break the fast, there are approximately 10 different things which break the first, and you can categorize them into two categories. The first category is that which breaks the past when we take it inside the body.
in them, there are four things. The first is eating and drinking. Second is anything that falls in the same category as eating or drinking.
Third is taking medicines, or pills, or injections, which are in the form of nourishment are somewhat similar to eating and drinking,
including blood transfusion. The fourth is
somewhat similar to kidney dialysis, where the blood is taken out, it's purified, and some nutrients are put into it and put back
the second category that which comes out from the body. There are six things in them. Number one is sexual intercourse. Number two is masturbation. Number three is menstruation. Number four is postnatal bleeding.
Number five is deliberate vomiting. And number six is letting out blood, somewhat similar to cupping, or something similar to that. So in all, there are 10 things which are invalid, the first
of those 10 things you've mentioned, could you Now tell us, which is considered to be the most serious and sinful act, which invalidates the vast the act which is the most sinful, and most serious amongst all of them, which invalidated the first bit is sexual intercourse.
That when you have sexual intercourse, and when the two private parts meet, then you're fast invalidating.
Whether ejaculation takes place or not.
And you have to pay for that. You have to complete the fast for that day. And if you make it up later, and you have to pay a penalty, that's
according to the date, in which our beloved Prophet said, it's mentioned in, say Buhari, more, number three, in the book of fasting, Hadith number 196. When a man comes to the prophet and says, that I am ruined, or prophet am ruined, the Prophet says, What is the matter? The man says, I had sex with my wife, while I was fasting. So the Prophet says that, can you free a slave? The man said, No, I cannot.
Then the Prophet asks, Can you fast
consecutively for two months? Can you fast continuously for 60 days?
The man says, No, I cannot, then the profits is that
can you feed 64 people.
And the man says no, and that this continues. In short, we come to know from the studies, that if any person does a sexual intercourse, it is one of the major sins, it is the most serious and sinful, amongst all the things that make the first the person who does this sin, He should immediately repent to Allah subhanaw taala and ask for forgiveness, he should complete his past for the day, and make up for the past later on after I'm done.
And is to pay a penalty. And the penalty comes from the he says that he either freeze a slave if he can,
if he does not have the money to feed the slave
or he cannot find a slave to free, then he should fast for two consecutive months.
Faster fast, for 60 days. If you cannot do that also, then should at least feed 64 people.
And these are the three options that have been given for a person to pay as a penalty as a confira. But if a person can do the first thing, you should not jump to the second or the third, the first is falling asleep. If you cannot do that, if he doesn't have the money, I cannot find a slip then we can go to the next option. That is fasting consecutively facilities. If you cannot do that, if you're unable to do that, continuously fasting for 60 days, if he
fast for a few days. And then Monday doesn't fast, he should start again. You should fast consecutively for 60 days. If he doesn't have the capacity to do that, then what he can do is he can feed 64 people and each person should be fed with approximately half the size equal to 300 full of or stretched and have it to have the person or the food that is there of the land.
So 64 people you should feed this is the confira the penalty for a person who breaks a fast by having a sexual intercourse
