Ejaculation whilst fasting

CategoriesSawm (fast) [227]

Fatwa ID: 02552

Answered by: Molana Muhammad Imad Ali


During Ramadhan whilst fasting, I ejaculated myself without using my hands or pillow or any other thing, I was lying on the bed (straight) and shaking my body, during this I ejaculated. Does this break the fast?


Ejaculation whilst one is in the state of Sawm i.e. fasting, whether it is an obligatory fast or an optional fast, will break the fast. However, one is required just to do qadha and there is no need for a kaffarah. (Sharah Wiqayah pg:262 v:1)
