RAMADHAN – FAQ
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
The Shaykh in reference is not a Hanafi and thus all the Fatawa are not inconformity with the Hanafi Madh-hab. The following verdicts are in accordance to the Hanafi Madh-hab:
However, if there is severe need, one should try his utmost best that the blood does not enter the throat. If blood enters the throat, the fast will be nullified if the amount of blood exceeds the amount of saliva or if both are equal. Similarly, if one can perceive the taste of blood, the fast will be nullified. If the content of saliva is more, then the fast will remain intact. [Raddul Muhtar 396/2 – HM Saeed, Ahsanul Fatawa; 4/ 426 HM Saeed]
**Mouthful: A mouthful is that which cannot be kept in the mouth except with difficulty. [Ahsanul Fatawa 443/4 – HM Saeed]
