Question

 

If a person masturbates while fasting, what he should do to repent it?

 

 

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

 

Answer:

 

If a fasting person ejaculates as a result of masturbating, he will have to repeat the fast and there will be no kaffarah. [1]

 

One should sincerely repent from this sin, it is mentioned in a Hadeeth that when a person seeks forgiveness from sin, it is as if he did not commit that sin at all. [2]

 

At the time of seeking forgiveness keep the following points in mind:

 

  • You should not be involved in the sin at the time of repentance.

 

  • You should have regret and remorse over your sins.

 

  • You should promise Allah Ta’ala that you will not return to that sin again.

 

 

Only Allah Ta’ala knows best
