Is a fast broken if a person masturbates during fasting?

A few years ago when I masturbated when fasting but never eat? If the fast is invalid what should I do to recompensate.




Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


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

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

Ejaculation through masturbation will invalidate the Fast. Only one Qadhaa is necessary. No kaffarah is necessary.  


And Allah knows best
