Breaking one’s fast thinking that azaan is being given

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a person thought the athaan went off while fasting in Ramadhaan (he heard the athaan on the radio or someone gave the athaan as a prank) and he broke his fast is the fast valid?


A: If the sun had already set then the fast is valid. If it had not yet set then the fast is not valid.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
