Blood that invalidates fasting


= If the blood comes out as a result of a person's action or choice and its amount is large and has an effect on the person's body, then this invalidates his fast (such as donating blood). One should make up that day (so as to avoid an area of scholarly dispute and be on the safe side and be sure that he has fulfilled his obligation).

= If the blood comes out as a result of a person's actions or choice and its amount is small and it does not harm the person, then it does not invalidate the fast, such as the small amount of blood that is taken for testing.

= If the blood comes out as a result of no deliberate action, such as an accident or nosebleed or an injury to any part of the body, the fast is still valid even if the amount of blood is large.

= If the blood that comes out as a result of no deliberate action and is of such a large amount that the person becomes weak and unable to fast, then it is permissible for him to break his fast and he should fast another day to make up for it.

= The blood of menstruation (haidh) and post-natal bleeding (nifas) invalidates the fast for the women, she must make up for that day and rest of the days until she is pure again.
