Does involuntary vomiting necessitate making up for the day?

Fatwas > Ramadan Fatwas > Does involuntary vomiting necessitate making up for the day?


The first, second and third questions of Fatwa no. 9517


Q: If a fasting person vomits involuntarily during the daytime in Ramadan, should they make up for that day?


A: Involuntary vomiting does not invalidate Sawm (Fasting); therefore, the one who experiences it does not have to make up for the day, because the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Whoever vomits involuntarily is not required to make up the fast, but whoever vomits deliberately, must make up the missed fast. (Related by Imam Ahmad and the Compilers of the Sunan [Abu Dawud, Al-Tirmidhy, Al-Nasa’y and Ibn Majah]through an authentic Isnad [chain of narrators])
