7 Things That Break Your Fasting

The things that void your fasting, scholars say, are seven. So, memorize them and then you don’t have to worry about anything else. Because now you know that these seven nullify your fast, so anything else does not.

1- EATING AND DRINKING

Anything that goes into your stomach and through the mouth or through the nose, then this nullifies your fasting. Even if you swallow a stone, it nullifies your fasting.

2- WHATEVER TAKES THE ROLE OF FOOD AND DRINK

Such as the IV, if you have galactose for example that you can live for 3-4 days without eating and drinking, just because of this IV is going into your veins, this nullifies your fasting.

This means that if I take antibiotics, voltarin shots, insulin, penicillin… anything that does not nourish me, and not take the role of eating and drinking, this doesn’t nullify your fasting.

So, if someone says: “I have to take vaccines, does it affect my fasting?”

No, it doesn’t.

“I have to extract a tooth and the doctor gives me anesthesia, does it affect my fasting?”

The answer is, no.
3- VOMITING INTENTIONALLY

I ate too much, I have something going on, I don’t like it, I put my finger or smell something and I vomit intentionally, this voids my fast.

If I ate too much and I feel disturbed and all of a sudden without me helping it, I’m vomiting. This is unintentional; it doesn’t affect my fast.

4- CUPPING

This is an issue of dispute among scholars. So, the most authentic opinion it’s safer not to cup while fasting. Cupping is having scratches and slashes on the back of your neck or on your shoulders and then extracting the rotten blood.

It’s a form of healing and medication. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) encouraged it. But during fasting refrain from it because it’s an issue of dispute.

However, taking samples of your blood for the hospital is totally permissible. Bleeding from your gum while the dentist is working this does not affect your fasting; try not to swallow it.

Donating blood, if it wears you down and it’s a pint or two, in this case make it after Maghrib (after iftar time). And if you don’t have the possibility to make it after Maghrib, then do it and make up for that day.
5- EJACULATION

Any person ejaculating, while he’s awake of course, because this is different than nocturnal emission. When you have wet dreams, when you ejaculate while sleeping, this doesn’t affect your fast at all. But if you do it intentionally, while awake by looking at something or masturbating, this nullifies your fasting.

6- INTERCOURSE

This is the highest of all. It nullifies your fasting and you have an expiation for it.

7- THE BLOOD OF MENSES OR POSTNATAL BLEEDING

If these two exist, then the fast is void; even if it’s seconds before the adhan of Maghrib.

Now, if you look at toothpaste and look at these seven categories, you will find that as long as it doesn’t go into your throat you’re in the clear.

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him!

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
