Some other Q&A about Janabah and Masturbation

Q: What must one do if nocturnal emission occurs after the fajr prayer during the month of Ramadan?

A: One’s fast remains valid and one must carry out the required ghusl before performing the ẓuhr prayer.

Q: Assuming one wakes up, before fajr, in a state of nocturnal emission, may he/she not ghuslate oneself until moments before the fajr adhān and thus tayammumate instead?

A: Assuming one intentionally delays ghuslating until there remains limited time to ghuslate, he/she would have sinned. Nevertheless, he/she ought to tayammumate before fajr arrives and his/her fast will be deemed valid.

Q: Assuming a man can’t fast, may he perform intercourse with his fasting wife?

A: This is not permissible.

Q: Assuming a fasting person sleeps after the fajr or ẓuhr prayer, during the month of Ramadan, and then unintentionally ejaculates while asleep, what ought he/she to do? Would their fast be deemd void?

A: Their fast will remain valid.

Q: what is the ruling concerning a person who got junub by masturbating at night during the month of Ramadan then he slept and got up at noon on the next day and did ghusl knowing that the previous night he had intended to fast this day?

A: If he thought that he would be able to get up before the time of fajr and intended to do ghusl before fajr upon waking up but he unwillingly continued sleeping beyond fajr, he was obliged to keep fasting on that day and to make it up later on in qaḍā’ but he owes nothing else.

Q: If somebody masturbates during the month of Ramadan but without any discharge, is his fasting invalidated?

A: if he do not intend masturbation and discharging semen and nothing is discharged, his fasting is correct even though he has done a ḥarām act. But, if he intends masturbation or he knows that he usually discharges semen by this process and semen really comes out, it is a ḥarām intentional breaking fasting.
