    Title: Masturbation during Ramdan

    Question: I was having fast. I saw a girl and I became excited, so I started masturbating. I didn't want to ejaculate, but somehow I ended up ejaculating my sperm. Is this a grave sin? If yes, what should I do for asking forgiveness from Allah the Almighty?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1149/1153/M=9/1434) Yes, masturbation is a grave sin. You should seek forgiveness from Allah for it weeping and saying: O Allah forgive this sin. You must avoid it in future. It is far better if you offer two rakahs salah al-taubah and seek forgiveness from Allah. Also, if possible give something in charity. Your fast broke due to it; hence you should make qaza of one fast after Ramadan.
