Question

 

41 days in my kaffarah I masturbated without intent to ejaculate but it came out and I couldn’t do anything about it. will I need to do kafarrah all over again or just qadha of this one fast.

 

 

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

 

Answer:

 

Breaking the Kaffarah fasts for any reasons besides period bleeding means you have to start over, so you will have to fast 60 days consecutively. [1]

 

Masturbation is a major sin and one you should strive to stay away from it while seeking forgiveness for what has already happened.
