Forgettingly inhaling bakhoor while fasting

Fatwaa ID: 1052

asalamualaikum wrwb

I went to the shop to buy bakhoor. The sales lady was trying out different scents so i could smell them. So i intentionally inhaled the smoke from bakhoor to smell it…and as soon as i did that…i realized i was fasting.

Will my fast be broken? I, forgetting that i was fasting, intentionally inhaled some smoke from the bakhoor.

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

We take note of the details of your query. We understand that at the time when you inhaled the smoke from the bakhoor, you forgot that you were fasting. Accordingly, your fast is valid.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
