Kaffaarah for masturbating while fasting

Q: I broke my fast due to masturbation what is the kafarah? And once after breaking my fast through masturbation I ate as well once. In total I did it around 4 times.

A: This is a very heinous sin. Repent profusely and beg Allah Ta`ala's forgiveness and do the qadha for this. Excessive taubah with a firm resolve will be a kaffaarah for this.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
