The Fast Breaks if One Ejaculates While Touching


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.

    Asalamualaykum. Does masturbation while fasting count as breaking the fast on purpose? Do i have to repeat it or pay any penalty? Jazakumullahukhairan

      The fast will break if one ejaculates (or reaches an orgasm) by masturbation while fasting and he/she must make up (qadha) one fast. This is a sinful act and he/she should ask Allah to forgive him/her as well. There is no monetary penalty. And Allah knows best.
