Inhaling Vapor While Fasting. by Taamas111 (m): 5:45pm on January 12

Assalamu alaikom, I have read many fatwas
,which say that water vapor ,if inhaled,
invalidates the fast.So my question is that I
was fasting one day and I was reheating some
food leftovers to avoid spoilage.As I was
doing so,I bent down and started smelling it
(while the vapor was coming out) to find out
if didn't spoil already.When I did this ,I had
completely forgotten the ruling regarding
inhaling water vapor.It entered my nose ,but
I am not sure f any water drops formed
down my throat.So is my fast invalidated in
this case and should I make up this day now?
Thank you for your time.

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

The scholars differed in opinion
whether or not inhaling vapor invalidates the
fast. However, even according to the opinion
that vapor breaks the fast, your fasting is
correct and you are not obliged to make it
up for the following two reasons:

1- You are not sure that the vapor
reached your throat or stomach, so
in principle the fasting is valid and it
is not invalidated just because of
doubt; this is because the well-
known Fiqh rule reads: “ Certainty is
not overruled by doubt.”
2- If we presume that some vapor
reached your throat, you did so out
of forgetfulness –as it appears from
the question –and whoever eats or
drinks out of forgetfulness, his
fasting is not invalidated according
to the correct opinion of the jurists
. Therefore, your fasting is
correct, Allah willing.

Allah Knows best.
