What invalidates the fast is bloodletting or cupping. This is because of the following narration from the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wassalam) Shaddad bin Aus (Radiallahu anhu) narrated that The Messenger of Allah (salallahu alayhi wassalam) came across a man in Al-Baqi' (in Madinah) who was having himself cupped in Ramadan., and said to him, “The one ...
