He vomited then swallowed his vomit unintentionally – does that mean his fast is invalidated?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

A fasting person vomited then he swallowed a little of his vomit unintentionally. What is the ruling?.

Praise be to Allaah.

If he vomited deliberately, his fast is invalidated, but if he couldn’t help it, then his fast is not invalidated. Similarly it is not invalidated by his swallowing some so long as that was not deliberate. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
