Accidental ejaculation during fasting

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

I’m asking for a friend of mine. He accidentally ejacultated whilst fasting with mere touching of the penis also with no intention to ejaculate either. Will this invalidate his fast? He had no intention to ejaculate and he was merely touching the penis.


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

If a person ejaculates without penetration, the fast breaks.

However, he only has to keep one fast (Qadha), and there will be no Kaffarah (penalty if keeping 60 fasts) on him.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
