Is fasting considered valid if a person eats during the morning azan?

Whats ruling on eating while Azan is going on during Suhoor? 

Answer:

قال الرملي في كتابه "نهاية المحتاج", ج- 3, ص- 175:
.
Imam al-Ramli, in his book "Nihayat al-Muhtazh" (.. v.3, p.175) writes:
.
"(ولو) (طلع الفجر) الصادق (وفي فمه طعام فلفظه) (صح صومه) وإن سبق منه شيء إلى جوفه"
.
"If upon the occurrence of a precise dawn (i.e. the morning prayer time), a man has food in his mouth and he spat it out, then his fast is valid even if the involuntary penetration/swallowing of food occurs."
.
"... ولو أمسكه في فيه فكما لو لفظه لكنه لو سبقه شيء منه إلى جوفه أفطر كما لو وضعه في فيه نهارا فسبق إلى جوفه".
.
"... If a person does not spit it out immediately, but keeps the food in his mouth, then in this case the fast does not break. But if something will penetrate beyond his throat into the interior, even involuntarily, then his/her fast is broken, as if the person during the day put food in his mouth, and it had inevitably penetrated inside."
