Q: A person vomitted less than a mouthful unintentionally and thereafter swallowed it intentionally. What's the condition of his fast?

A:
The fast will not break as long as it was less than a mouthful.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

 

Q: Is it permissible to store or feed a pig?

A:
The entire pig (not only the meat) is Najis and  impure. A pig should be totally abhorred and one should therefore stay away from pigs in totality and avoid being in close proximity to them. 

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

 

Q: Is Qada necessary if a person ejaculates without manual stimulation because of viewing explicit material while fasting?

A:
Whilst fasting, just as it is impermissible to indulge in sexual activities similarly it is impermissible to fantasize about sexual activities. As far as looking at pornography is concerned it is totally prohibited irrespective of whether one is fasting or not. Committing these major sins in the state of fasting destroys the reward of the fast completely.

However, if a person ejaculates due to fantasizing or looking at pornography without anything touching or rubbing his private part the fast will not break.

If one masturbates by touching or rubbing his private part on something whilst fasting the fast will be nullified. Only Qadha will be Wajib.

(Durrul Mukhtar 2:396, Al Fatawa Al Hindiyyah 1:204, Maraaqil Falaah pg 658)

 

Q: If a person vomits and then brushes his or her teeth and used mouth wash while fasting and than thinks that the fast is broken, but doesn't eat for the rest of the fast, is the fast valid?

A:
If nothing was taken down the throat the fast will be valid.

If the person who has already commenced fasting merely intends to break his fast without physically doing so then the Fast will be valid and the intention void. (Shaami Vol.2 Pg.380)

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

 

Q: Fake leather i.e. polyurethane is made with a process with alcohol which can be from grapes and is impure. As such will the item as a result be impure? For example many items are of polyurethane like phone cases till complete couches.

A:
According to the cursory research on this, this material undergoes many processes especially a heating process at the end which will remove the impurity of the alcohol.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
