Answered by Ustadha Shazia Ahmad
Do I have to pay a fidya (expiation) for the days I broke my fast in Ramadan because of masturbation?
Thank you for your question.
No, you must repent and make up each fast that you invalidated in this way.
Please see the details here in the Shafi’i school:
Is There an Expiation for Masturbation During Fasting? (Shafi’i)
How to Make up Broken Fasts From Ramadan Through Eating or Masturbation? (Shafi’i)
May Allah give you the best of this world and the next.
