Rinsing the Mouth and Sniffing Water
Question:

If a fasting person rinses his mouth or sniffs water into his nose, and the water enters his stomach, does he break his fast thereby?
Answer:

If a fasting person rinses his mouth or sniffs water into his nose and the water enters his stomach, it does not break his fast, because he did not intend to do it and Allaah, the Most High has said:

And there is no sin on you if you make a mistake therein, except in regard to what your hearts deliberately intend. [Al-Ahzaab 33:5]
