I knew that We need to take bath before praying if we masturbated or having sex with wife. I would like to know the same case in fasting. Suppose I masturbate or had sex with wife during the night time in Ramsan. Do I need to have bath before subhi(dawn)?..If i enter to fasting without taking a bath wheather that fasting is valid?
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh
Being in such a state that one requires ghusl, does not prevent the fast from being valid. You may take the bath after the fast has already commenced, however it should not be unnecessarily delayed.
Please note that masturbation is not permissible, unless one spouse masturbates the other.
And Allah knows best
