How Can I Deal With Living With My Brother's Drug Problem?

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Assalam alaykum

I used to masturbate but I left it. I looked at some pornographic content and felt a wet sensation and saw fluid out of my penis. I decided to just rub it so I went to the bathroom but to my surprise fluid came out.
What should I do about my fast?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

If you ejaculated due to masturbation, you would need to perform a makeup (qada’).

Ask Allah Most High to forgive you, and to protect you from that which is displeasing to Him. Busy yourself with the good, learn something of religious knowledge daily, and find some righteous company.
