Masturbation while fasting

Fatwa ID: 02937

Answered by: Maulana Mustafa Umar


Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

Does a fast break when a woman ejaculates without rubbing or playing with her hands in the month of Ramadan


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

If someone unintentionally ejaculates without touching their body then the fast will not break. Likewise, if someone has a wet dream and they ejaculate, the fast will not break. However, if you rub a place where normally results in pleasure, and this leads to ejaculation, then the fast will break and makeup is required. (Radd ul-Muhtar2:399, Darulfikr Beirut 1992)
