Does swallowing bitter saliva with a burp count as vomiting?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
if you burp and some saliva comes up too with the burp (less than a mouthful) and you intentionally swallow it, and on swallowing it you find the taste of the saliva is bitter, is that saliva counted as vomit or not?


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

This saliva is not saliva rather vomit. The fast is only broken if one had vomited a mouthful involuntarily and swallowed it voluntarily or if one had voluntarily (induced) vomited a
mouthful whether swallowed or not. (Fataawa Hindiyya – vol. 1, pg. 203/4).

The definition of “mouthful (vomit)” is that which one cannot hold back in one’s mouth without difficulty. (Nurul Idhah Pg. 35)

If this was less than a mouthful then the fast did not break.

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
