Fasting and Nose Bleeding

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by CouncilofUlama.co.za

Q: Whilst fasting, if the nose begins to bleed, will the fast break?

A: The fast will not break by mere nose bleeding. If the blood flowed down the nasal passage and entered the throat then it will be seen whether the blood was more than the saliva or less than it. If the blood was more than the saliva or equal to it then the fast will break. If the blood was less than the saliva then the fast will not break.
