Consuming something haraam

Q: Please advise if someone eats a cake made of wine in a hurry without knowing about it. Is there any kaffara that can be paid?


A: If he had come to know immediately after eating it, he should try to remove it from his system through vomiting. If he came to know later on, then he should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala for consuming haraam and exercise extra caution in the future.

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