Does Tasting Blood Break the Fast?
Question: Does tasting blood break the fast?
Thank you for your important question.
1. Tasting blood does not break the fast. Swallowing blood breaks the fast if (a) the blood reaches the throat and (b) the blood is greater or equal to the saliva it mixes with [Ibn ‘Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar].
2. Tasting the toast does not break the fast, as long as no toast was swallowed.
And Allah alone knows best.

Assalam alaikum rahmatullah wa barakatuh, My name is Sameer and i am a Software Engineer in Pune. We work in an IT company and the there is no Masjid nearby hence we pray in the rest room provided by the company which is also used for meetings and conferences. My question 1. Is our Namaaz valid if we pray without a Namaaz rug as the room is also frequented by other people wearing shoes? Your soonest reply shall be appreciated.
