Benefit: Ramaḍān - The Ruling on the One Who Loses Consciousness while Fasting
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Faṭwá Series for Ramaḍān 2016 - featuring selected faṭāwá by Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī (رحمه الله).
[A]: The one who loses consciousness is of two types:
 If the loss of consciousness is temporary, such as one day, a few days or that which is like that, then this resembles sleep.
 If the loss of consciousness is for a long period, such as a month or two, then [the individual who experiences] this is like the insane individual whose pen is lifted (i.e he's unaccountable).
Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Yaḥyá al-Najmī (رحمه الله).
