ruling on one who kissed a girl who was a stranger (non-mahram) to him in Ramadaan

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
What is the ruling on one who kissed a girl who was a stranger (non-mahram) to him in Ramadaan, and does he have to make up the fast?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

Undoubtedly this man who kissed a girl who was a stranger (non-mahram) to him has not understood the wisdom and purpose behind fasting, because this man has committed an act of falsehood. The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever does not give up speaking falsehood and acting accordingly, and ignorance, Allaah has no need of him giving up his food and drink.” If he did that and forced her to do that, then in this case it was an act of both falsehood and ignorance, and he has failed to understand the wisdom and purpose behind fasting and his reward is diminished without a doubt, but according to the majority of scholars his fast is not invalidated in the sense that we do not say that he has to make it up. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
