Breaking a Fast Unintentionally
  • Question:

    What is the punishment for breaking a fast unintentionally?

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Absolutely nothing. if it is unintentional the Prophet (peace be upon him) said that the accidental eating was a charity from Allah and your fasting is intact. This means it was never broken and you should continue to fast throughout the day.

    And Allah knows best.
