Kaffarah for masturbating whilst fasting

23 Aug 2019 Ref-No#: 2153

Hi my qustion is i used to committe secret act and did not know it would break fast, then i found out however could not stop i have stopped more then half a year.

i wanted to know is kaffara only for intercourse?

Will i need to offer qaza for deliberarly breaking fast after realising the fact it could break the fast as thier were a more then 20.

Also i was makeing up qaza fasting for breaking fast and had wet dream however when i woke up however did not stop it immediatly as i thoight i was in the dream and couldnt stop it. Will i have to offer another qaza

also what if i didnt stop it intentionally after waking up as i cant remember.
I have sincerly repented and am shamefill.
Thank you

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

Masturbation is a major sin in Islam. A person should abstain from masturbation at all costs. Remember, Allah is watching us, even when we are alone and in total privacy. Repent to Allah for the past, and have sincere determination to no more repeat this act.

If one masturbates, the fast will break. However, one Qadha is compulsory. There is no Kaffarah.
