Not sure if I ejaculated while fasting

Fatwaa ID: 2356

Assalamualikum. I am a female and gave into temptation and masturbated for seconds maybe a minute not sure but not very long. Astaghfiruallah. I cant tell if I ejaculated. I stopped as I felt myself reaching orgasm so I wouldnt ejaculated. But unsure if I ejaculated anyways. Cant tell the difference between normal vagina secretion vs ejaculation? Is my fast invalidated? Do I have to make it up? Is ghusl required? Do I have to pay penalty of feeding 60 people or fasting for 60 days consecutively? Does it count as feeding 60 people if I just pay to charity online? Please make dua for me to give up this disgusting habit.

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

May Allaah Ta’aala give you the strength to leave the evil sin in question.

We take note of the details of your query. If you are unable to determine what the fluid was in the enquired situation, then it will be best for you to make qadhaa of that day. While the act you engaged in was abhorrent, it does not necessitate kaffaarah of sixty days. Qadhaa of one day is sufficient.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
