Unintentionally breaking a qadha fast

Q: I’m currently 7 months pregnant and keeping my qadha fasts. Yesterday I unintentionally broke my fast 1 minute early thinking that was the correct time of ifthar. I realised later in the evening that it was a minute early. What do I do?


A: You will have to repeat the broken fast. Since you opened your fast unintentionally, you will not be sinful. 

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

وقد وجد العلامة الشيخ إسماعيل النابلسي هذه المسألة منقولة فقال ولفظ المبتغى لو فاته الحج ثم حج من قابل يريد قضاء تلك الحجة فأفسد حجه لم يكن عليه إلا قضاء حجة واحدة كما لو أفسد قضاء صوم رمضان اه ) رد المحتار 2/560)
