The Second Most Serious and Sinful Act Which Invalidates the Fast During Ramadaan?

The second most serious thing that breaks the fast or invalidates the fast it is masturbation. And this we get from the Hadith of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (saws),

its mentioned in Sahih Bukhari Vol. No. 3 in the Book of Fasting, Hadith no. 1894 where the Prophet said that

“Allah (swt) said: that all the deeds of the son of Adam are for himself except for fasting, its Saum and I will reward him” and further he says that “the person he leaves, he abstains from eating and drinking and his desires for my sake, Allah says the person abstains from eating, drinking and his desires is for my sake”

Now this desire from here we come to know it includes even masturbation. So when a person masturbates or ejaculates whether by touching his wife or looking at his wife or for other reason or looking at any another woman and if an ejaculation takes place then the fasts gets invalidated. He has to repent to Allah (swt) and complete that day of fasting and he should compensate for this fast, keep this fast later after the Ramadhaan gets over. But here there is no Kaffaara, there’s no penalty because that penalty is only for sexual intercourse. Here because the intercourse hasn’t taken place, there is no penalty, he should only repent, make up that fast, that fast he should complete and then make up for that fast later on.
But if a person does not ejaculate and if there is Madi which comes out, fluid then the fast does not break. Similarly this is the prostatic fluid, the Madhi. And if the Madhi comes out i.e. after urination a white fluid, then too the fast does not break only thing he has to do is after Istinja he should wash the private parts and do Wudhu, the fast does not break. He can complete the fast and continue the fast.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
