Fasting person's fast breaking if he sat with a person who started smoking

Q: If a person who had a habit of fasting in Thursdays, sat amongst some brothers and if someone started smoking shisha pens and the person didn’t move from that place but he does not recall intentionally sniffing in any smoke, would his fast break?

A: If he did not inhale the smoke, his fast has not broken.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
