What is the ruling for a person that masturbated during a fast in Ramadan to the point of ejaculation?

Question:

As salaamu ’alaykum,

What is the ruling for a person that masturbated during a fast in Ramadan to the point of ejaculation? What is the kafaarah for that? Is it two months of fasting? 

 

Answer:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما

Wa ‘alaykum as salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh,

If a person masturbates to the point of ejaculation while fasting in Ramadan, this will break his fast. He will have to make up for this fast and repent to Allah سبحانه وتعالى. However, the kaffarah of fasting 60 consecutive days will not be compulsory on him.

 والله اعلم

And Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala knows best.
