A Hadith on eating forgetfully when fasting

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is this Hadith reliable?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“If anyone forgets that he is fasting and eats or drinks he should complete his fast [for the fast does not break], for it is only Allah Who has fed him and given him drink”

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 1933, 6669 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1155)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
