While fasting, Zaid spoke to his wife from far and then he held her hand and ejaculated. Is the fast valid or did it break? Did any defect occur?
The fast broke. A Qadhaa (make up fast) is necessary.
And Allah Subhaanahu Wa Ta’alaa knows best.
(Faqeehul Ummah Hazrat Mufti) Mahmood Gangohi (May Allah have mercy on him)
The answer is correct.
