Questioner: A person broke their fast in Ramadan. That is: a person hit him and he lost consciousness. When he recovered, they gave him water to drink. So did he break his fast deliberately or not?
Shaikh: Did he drink the water by his own choice or did they give him the water to drink?
Questioner: By his choice
Questioner: Because he was not able to stand
Questioner: He fainted after being hit and he was not able to stand until he was given water to drink
Shaikh: After his consciousness was lost, what happened with him?
Questioner: They awakened him using ammonia. When he awoke, he requested water
Abu Layla: When he recovered, he asked to drink water
Questioner: He was not able to stand
Shaikh: He makes up the day [i.e. he makes up the fast]
Questioner: That is: he did not break the fast deliberately?
Shaikh: He did not do so deliberately, but due to a sickness or a symptom
Question: He did not have a sickness
Shaikh: I said to you: due to a sickness that was present
Questioner: Thank you Virtuous Shaikh”
