Question:

 

When does vomit break the fast? 

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

To intentionally vomit (i.e., to do something which causes you to vomit) does not break the fast unless it is a mouthful (Raddul Mukhtaar, Vol 3, Pg 393). If it is a mouthful, Qadhaa will be necessary.

 

إن استسقاء عامدًا إن كان ملء الفم فسد بالإجماع و إن أقل فلا

 

 

 

Only Allah knows best.
