Question: A man who was fasting took a bath and due to the strong pressure of the water, he ended up swallowing some water without intending to. Does he have to make this fast up?

Response: He does not have to make this fast up because he hadn’t intended that, so his ruling is that of one who is forced and one who has forgotten.
