Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet said:
"Whoever forgets he is fasting, and eats or drinks is
to complete his fast, as it was Allah who fed him
and gave him something to drink." This is related by
Bukhari
Intentional vomiting
If one is overcome and vomits unintentionally, he
does not have to make up the day later on or per-
form the acts of expiation.
Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (sa) said:
"Whoever is overcome and vomits is not to make up
the day."
But if a person makes himself vomit, he must make
that day up.
This is related by Ahmad, Abu Dawud, at-Tirmizhi,
Ibn Majah, Ibn Hibban, ad-Daraqutni, and al-
Hakim.
