Fasting and Water in Stomach

Q: Does the fast break if water gets into the stomach while making istinja and will kaffarah have to be made?

A: It is difficult to get water up the anus, but if it does happen, Qadhaa will be necessary and not Kaffaarah. Do not insert a wet finger into the cavity of the anus while making Istinjaa.
