Question

Well sorry for taking so much of your time.
As for my question. I of course heard
masturbation is haram! YES! And I tried to
stop it and in the end I got rid of the bad
habit. ALHAMDULILLAH! And thanks to Allah
I made it. As for the past ramadans I did not
know masturbations was haram? If I had
known I would never have done it when I
fasted. Is it still for me obliged to refast
these days? Even though I did not know and
have repented? It will be many days and due
to me not knowing it, growing up in a
western country I could not know and I did
not do it on purpose. I fear Allah and would
never do anything that he prohibited me to
do. The last ramadan in 2006 I fasted
without doing the haram because at that
time I KNEW WHAT WAS RIGHT AND WRONG.
nobody had informed me and I am selftaught
in many things like prayer, knowing things in
islam. Wasn't taught about these things that
much in my childhood! SHOUDL I REFAST ALL
THESE DAYS EVEN THOUGH I DID NOT KNOW
BETTER AT THAT TIME? AGAIN SORRY FOR
SUCH A LONG MESSAGE but I felt I needed to
write to you and also inform myself about
things. And I hope you will insha'Allah
answer me in an islamic manner and answer
with the truth of Islam :), ameen! sorry for
writing this again, my e-mail was not correct
and I hope you won't publish my e-mail?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

We have mentioned in Fatwa 85151 that
masturbation during the day of Ramadan
nullifies the fasting and that the person who
does so must make up those days even if
they are many. If one does not know exactly
the number of the days, then he should fast
the number of days which he strongly
believes would cover the number of days he
nullified his fast.
However, the scholars have stated
clearly that whoever eats or drinks or
indulges in sexual intercourse during the day
of Ramadan not knowing that it is
prohibited, such as a person who was raised
in a remote desert or a new-comer to Islam,
then his fast does not become null for that
violation.
If the environment where the enquiring
sister lives lacks Islamic knowledge and
ignorance is prevailing to the extent that
people do not know that masturbation
nullifies fasting, and the enquiring sister was
ignorant about that ruling, then her situation
is similar to that of the one who was raised
in a remote desert. Therefore, her fasting is
valid and she does not need to make up
those days. However, if she fasts the missed
days then it is better to be on the safe side.

Allah Knows best.
