Vomiting during fast


I was fasting in Ramadan I vomited does it break my fast?


Vomiting involuntarily will not cause the fast to become void, even if it is a mouthful. However, the fast will break in two scenarios if someone vomits.

[1] The first scenario is if someone vomits on purpose and it’s a mouthful.

[2] The second scenario is that the vomit was not on purpose but was a mouthful and he deliberately takes something (at least equivalent to the amount of a chick pea) down the throat, the fast will be nullified.

In these two scenarios the fast will only break if someone remembers he is fasting.
