      Some Rules on Fast Invalidators
        169.  Fast becomes void due to fast invalidators only if one does so on purpose and voluntarily. However, if it is not on purpose and willful, e.g. one slips and his whole head goes under water, one eats because one forgets that he is fasting, they pour food inside his throat by force, then his fast is valid.

       170.  If they make a fasting person to eat, e.g. tell him if you do not eat we injure you or damage your property and he eats to prevent the loss, his fast is void.

       171. If a fasting person does a fast invalidator inadvertently and then thinking his fast is void does a fast invalidator on purpose, his fast becomes void.
        To Use Perfume while Fasting
      172. What is the rule on fast in Ramadan while wearing perfumes?
      A: It is mustaḥabb to wear perfume; but smelling the scent of plants is makrūh.
