I converted at the beginning of Ramadan so I am very new to Islam, however I am doing worse in Ramadan then before. I have ruined my fast by masturbating three times on three different days during the time of the fast. I am so guilty and angry with myself, I do not know what to do. I hate myself for this and feel no matter what I do, pray for forgiveness or anything Allah will never ever forgive me for this. I am still a virgin, I'm years-old male living in USA. But at times my sexual desires cause me to masturbate rather than getting physically involved with a woman which I know would be far worse.
No doubt masturbation is haraam according to most of the scholars, as Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah may Allaah have mercy on him said. If this happened in Ramadaan, this is worse, and if there was ejaculation of sperm because of the masturbation, the violation of the sanctity of the fast is even more severe in sin. From the time the maniy semen is ejaculated, the fast is broken, but the person should still fast for the rest of that day.

I used to masturbate in Ramadan in day and at night. Now — and thanks to Allah — I repented of that act. So, what should I do? All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. Peace and blessing be upon whom Allah sent as a mercy to the Worlds, upon his Family, his Companions and his Brothers till the Day of Resurrection. Regardless of the ruling concerning masturbation, which is stated in a fatwa before 1 , I do not know that scholars disagree about the fact that the one who masturbates, does the other causes of ejaculation such as kissing his wife, embracing her or other acts, should not carry out an expiation, because, as a rule, there is no expiation [until there would be evidence to prove it]. However, the divergence lies in whether one should make up the missed day or not; and the soundest opinion is that masturbation, using hand or other means, do neither imply making up the missed day nor expiation. Actually, joining, by analogy, the masturbator to the one who makes a sexual intercourse is clearly different, because the intercourse is an act that is more serious than masturbation.
