Fantasizing whilst fasting

Q: Does one’s fast breaks if one fantasizes or watches pornography and ejaculates?

A: Whilst fasting, just as it is impermissible to indulge in sexual activities similarly, it is impermissible to fantasize about sexual activities. Pornography is totally prohibited in Islam. Committing a major sin in the state of fasting destroys the reward of the fast. However, if a person ejaculates due to fantasizing or viewing pornographic material without anything touching or rubbing the private part, the fast will not break.

If a person masturbates by touching or rubbing his private part on something whilst fasting, the fast will be nullified. Qadha will be Wajib.
