The ruling of breaking a Qadha fast

Q. I am making up my Qadha fasts of Ramadaan which I did not keep because of my Haidh. This Morning, my husband and I engaged in foreplay and climax/ejaculation took place. Do I have to keep another Qadha fast for breaking Todays Qadha fast of Ramadaan because of my Haidh? What is the ruling of a Qadha fast being broken?

A. A Qadha fast is only a substitute for the original fast. Hence, in the enquired case, you would only have to make up one Qadha fast. An additional fast is not required for breaking the Qadha fast.(Shaami 2/560)
