The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: "Whoever breaks the fast during Ramadan without an allowance or illness, then if he fasted for all time, his fasting would not make up for it." (Jami` at-Tirmidhi 723)

Eating and Drinking

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "If somebody eats something forgetfully while he is fasting, then he should complete his fast, for Allah has made him eat and drink." (Sahih al-Bukhari 6669)


Taking any kind of medicine i.e injections or drips etc can break your fast. For example, if you take any antibiotics or inject insulin, your fast is broken.

Vomiting intentionally

Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said, “Whoever unintentionally vomits, he does not have to make up for the fast, but whoever makes himself vomit, has to make up for the fast.” (Ibn Majah 1676)

If anyone of us vomits unintentionally then we will have to continue our fast but if we ourselves try to make vomit ourselves then it broke our fast if we vomit in this case.

Cupping and Hijamah

Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) had said, 'The cupper and the one for whom cupping is done both breaking their fast.' (Ibn Majah 1679)


The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Allah said: The Fast is for Me and I will give the reward for it, as he (the one who observes the fast) leaves his sexual desire, food, and drink for My Sake. Fasting is a screen (from Hell) and there are two pleasures for a fasting person, one at the time of breaking his fast, and the other at the time when he will meet his Lord. And the smell of the mouth of a fasting person is better in Allah's Sight than the smell of musk."
