IV. Ascribing Lies to Allah and His Prophet (peace be upon Him)
1605. If a person who is observing fast, intentionally ascribes something false to Allah and the Prophet (peace be upon Him) and his vicegerents (peace be upon Them), verbally or in writing or by making a sign and the likes of it, his fast becomes void, even if he may at once retract and say that he has uttered a lie or may repent for it. Moreover, as per obligatory precaution, imputing lies to Lady Fatima Zahra (peace be upon Her) and all the previous Prophets and their successors has the same ruling.
1606. If a person observing fast wishes to quote something about which he does not know whether it is true or false, as per obligatory precaution, he should give a reference of the person who reported it, or of the book in which it is written.
1607. If a person quotes something as the word of Allah or of the Holy Prophet with the belief that it is true, but realises later that it was false, his fast does not become void.
1608. If a person ascribes something to Almighty Allah or the Holy Prophet knowing it to be false and later understands that it was true, his fast will become void and in the month of Ramadhan, he should refrain from those activities which invalidates a fast until Maghrib; however giving its Kaffarah is not obligatory.
1609. If a person intentionally ascribes to Allah, the Holy Prophet, or the successors of the Holy Prophet a falsehood fabricated by some other person, his fast becomes void. However, if he quotes the person who has fabricated that falsehood, there will be no objection in his fast.
1610. If a person who is observing fast is asked whether such has the Holy Prophet (peace be upon Him) said and he intentionally says 'No' where he should have said 'Yes' or intentionally says 'Yes' where he should have said 'No', his fast becomes void.
1611. If a person quotes a true word of Allah or of the Holy Prophet, and later says that he had uttered a lie, or if he ascribed something false to them at night, and says on the following day when he is observing a fast that what he said on the previous night was true, his fast becomes void.
