Masturbating while fasting


1. When i was a young unmarried girl, I used to masturbate reaching orgasm using water on my clitoris. At that time I did not know that ghusal had to be taken and usually just had a normal bath (not fulfilling the fardh of ghusul). What is the condition of all my fast and salaah for those years?

2 When I got married, I remember my husband made me reach orgasm through clitoral stimulation while I was fasting in the month of Ramadaan. I was immature and naive and unfortunately not aware of the mas'ala. Years have passed but it keeps troubling me as to what is the conditon of all my salaah and my Ramadaan fast. Please advise

A: The fasts are valid if it was not done in the state of fasting. If it was done in the state of fasting then you will have to keep a qadha for it. In the bath you are required to wash the entire body, gargle the mouth and put water into the nostrils. If all these were done then the namaaz was valid, and if it was not then the namaaz is not valid. You should repeat those namaaz.

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