Ejaculating whilst fasting

CategoriesSawm (fast) [228]

Fatwa ID: 02550

Answered by: Molana Jamal Ahmed


If a person ejaculates due to rubbing anything other than his private 

part directly (e.g the testicles or back passage area) then does their 

fast break as they have not directly masturbated? If not then will it 

break if this rubbing has been done with the intention to ejaculate?


Waalaikum Salaam.

If you rub a place which, normally pleasure is gained from, and as a result you ejaculate, then your fast will break and only qaza will be necessary. (Raddulmuhtar vol. 2 , p. 399,  Darulfikr Beirut 1992)

Only Allah knows best.
