Masturbation, or what is called the secret habit, is haraam
because of the evidence which has been explained in the answer to question
number 329. If climax is reached
as a result, it is obligatory to do ghusl (full ablution).
There is no particular expiation for masturbation, but it is
obligatory to repent from it, by giving it up, regretting having done it and
resolving not to go back to it.
If doing the secret habit is accompanied by climax, then this
invalidates the fast and prayer is not valid unless you do ghusl.
If it was not accompanied by climax, then your prayer and
fasting are valid.
If a person masturbates and is ignorant of the ruling that it
is obligatory to do ghusl afterwards and that it invalidates the fast, does
he have to make up the prayer and the fast? There is a difference of opinion
among the fuqaha’ concerning that, but the majority are of the view that it
is obligatory to make them up. Some scholars are of the view that it is not
obligatory. See the answer to question number
In order to be on the safe side, you should make up the fast
of those two days, if climax was reached.

and righteous deeds, but we do not think that you are obliged to make them

And Allah knows best.
