If Someone Forgets That Nasal Drops Break the Fast and Remembers After Using Them

CategoriesSawm (fast) [226]

Fatwa ID: 06048

 

Answered by: Alimah Safiyya-Maryam Ahmed

 

Question:

 

If someone forgets that nasal drops break the fast and remembers after using them, does it break their fast? Note that the issue was not that they did not forget that they were fasting, rather they forgot that this is one of the mufaṭṭirāt.

 

 

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

 

Answer:

 

The usage of nasal drops will invalidate the fast whether done intentionally, by accident or forgetfully. However, if it was done by mistake as you have mentioned then you will only need to make up one Qadha for that fast rather than Kaffarah.

الْمُفْسِدُ هُنَا قِسْمَانِ: مَا يُوجِبُ الْقَضَاءَ فَقَطْ، أَوْ مَعَ الْكَفَّارَةِ. وَغَيْرُ الْمُفْسِدِ قِسْمَانِ أَيْضًا: مَا يُبَاحُ فِعْلُهُ، أَوْ يُكْرَهُ (قَوْلُهُ: الْفَسَادُ وَالْبُطْلَانُ فِي الْعِبَادَاتِ سِيَّانِ) أَمَّا فِي الْمُعَامَلَاتِ فَإِنْ لَمْ يَتَرَتَّبْ أَثَرُ الْمُعَامَلَةِ عَلَيْهَا فَهُوَ الْبُطْلَانُ، وَإِنْ تَرَتَّبَ فَإِنْ كَانَ مَطْلُوبَ التَّفَاسُخِ شَرْعًا فَهُوَ الْفَسَادُ وَإِلَّا فَهُوَ الصِّحَّةُ ح عَنْ الْبَحْرِ…

قُلْت: لَكِنْ لَا كَفَّارَةَ عَلَيْهِ وَهُوَ الْمُخْتَارُ كَمَا فِي التَّتَارْخَانِيَّة عَنْ النِّصَابِ وَقَدْ نَسَبُوا هَذِهِ الْمَسْأَلَةَ إلَى أَبِي يُوسُفَ وَنَسَبَ إلَيْهِ الْقُهُسْتَانِيُّ فَسَادَ الصَّوْمِ بِالنِّسْيَانِ مُطْلَقًا وَلَمْ أَرَهُ لِغَيْرِهِ وَسَيَأْتِي مَا يَرُدُّهُ (رد المحتار. كتاب الصوم, باب ما يفسد الصوم وما لا يفسده)
