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. I am a college student and do not have much money, and I do not know if I can handle fasting 60 days after Ramadan I read somewhere that is what one must do if they mess up their fast.
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. It is not permissible for him to stop fasting, because of the sanctity of the month. You have to repent for breaking your fast by deliberately ejaculating, and you also have to repent for not keeping the fast for the rest of the day and for violating the sanctity of the fast by doing something else that broke the fast, namely eating food. You also have to fast one day to make up for breaking your fast. And Allaah is Forgiving and Merciful. Password should contain small, capital letter and at least 8 characters long.

Is masterbation allowed in the night time during the month of Ramadan if we are very scared that we might do zina or masterbate during the day?? There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement.

Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad saws is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. The scholars of all schools of thought are unanimous in their opinion that the evil act of masturbation would, without an iota of a doubt, fall under the category of those whose desires exceed the limits.
Khameini, who is Iran's most powerful political and religious figure, was asked on his website : "If somebody masturbates during the month of Ramadan but without any discharge, is his fasting invalidated? Another reader asked: "Once in the holy month of Ramadan, I forgot to brush my teeth, and some tiny bits of food remained in my mouth. I swallowed the bits unintentionally. On the website, Khameini also tells Iranians that only jockeys are permitted to gamble on horse races. He is also asked whether it is permissible for a man to marry a woman only in order to be able to live in his wife's country.
