Question # 13-46: Food in the mouth during the Adaan invalidates the fasting?

Question:

If someone realized, after sunrise, that he had a piece of food got stuck between his teeth from soohur, and the person purposely swallowed it, is his fasting still valid?

Answer:

All praises be to Allah, Lord of the Universe,

The majority of the Ulamah, agrees that the person will lose his day. But,some of the Ulamah like Abu Hanifah (may Allah be pleased with him), say that if the size of the piece of food is smaller than the size of a chick pea, it is okay to eat it because that piece food was considered as already eaten on time.

Allah knows best.
