Masturbating while fasting

Q: If a man is masturbating during a Qadha fast but then tries to stop but ejaculation occurs anyway. Is the fast counted? If not is the ruling the same
i.e. must he keep one fast for the missed fast?



1. No, it is not counted.

2. Yes, one fast should be kept.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
