In the name of Allah the most gracious and merciful. In the blessed month of Ramzan, all Muslims around the world fast in this month. But sometimes this happens to us while fasting, we accidentally eat or drink something but then after a while, we remember that we were fasting and we have eaten the thing by mistake, do we have to continue our fast or not?
Allah had said in Holy Quran, “When a person is forgetful, it means they unintentionally ate or drank, this doesn’t break their fast. Their fast is still valid. In the Quran, it says: ‘And there is no sin on you if you make a mistake therein, except in regard to what your hearts deliberately intend. And Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful ” (Al-Ahzaab 33:5)
This statement completely states that if a person eats or drinks by mistake then he/she has to continue their fast and there is no sin on them if they eat or drink by mistake.
