Question: I have broken my fast two times by having a sexual relation. What should I do?

Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

You need to do two things:

(1) Repent for your mistake, [see: A Reader on Tawba (Repentance)]

(2) and makeup the two fasts in which you had intercourse.

If either of these was Ramadan, you need to perform an expiation which is sixty consecutive fasts.

And Allah alone gives success.
