28Q. Ate out of forgetfulness?

28A. Does not affect the fast InshaAllah.

29A. Tasting is allowed if needed, however, we should make sure we do not swallow it. http://islamqa.info/en/ref/49658/taste%20food%20fast

30Q. What if one mistakenly swallows the food while tasting it? Is the Fast valid?

31Q. Do bee & scorpion sting invalidate the fast?

31A. NO,  http://islamqa.info/en/ref/67168/invalidates%20fast

32Q. Does bleeding out of accident, injury, sickness invalidate  the Fast?

32A. NO, unless that is intentionally done when not necessary. http://islamqa.info/en/ref/37918/invalidates%20fast

33Q. If the gums of a person bleeds, does it invalidate the Fast?

33A. If one’s gums bleed while brushing his or her teeth, it would not break the fast as long as one does not do this intentionally or swallow any blood on purpose. If one  intentionally causes his or her gums to bleed and/or swallows the blood, then fasting is broken.

Sheikh Muhammad Al-`Uthaymeen (may Allah bless his soul):

The blood that is caused by extracting teeth or nose bleeding does not break the fast on condition that one is cautious  not to swallow  the blood intentionally. This is based on the fact that unintentional bleeding is not among the things that invalidate the fast. So, whoever bleeds by accident or unintentionally does not need to make up for that day of fasting.

34Q. When a person wakes up in the morning and he is fasting, and there are bits of food left from his sahoor in his mouth, what is the ruling if he swallows them?

34A. It won’t affect the fast unless the chunks are big and the person could have spit it out but chose to swallow it instead, then his/her fast is invalid.
