Ejaculation due to kissing

Fatwaa ID: 938

A couple during fasting who happened to be kissing and that lead to ijeculation,what will be the ruling for that fast,Qadhaa or Kafaarah?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

One of the goals of fasting is to exercise restraints. It is prohibited for one to engage in any form of intimate interactions if one is unable to control himself. Nevertheless, in the enquired situation where the husband ejaculated due to kissing, his fast has broken. However, only qadhaa will be necessary. Both should make tawbah and istighfaar and refrain from such in the future.

It should be noted that if the kissing involved exchanging of saliva, i.e., they made out, then that too would result in the fast breaking. In this case however, kaffaarah will also be necessary according to the Hanafi legal school.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
