I am trying to fast all of ramadan, however I do get sexual urges and since I am not married I masturbate to prevent me from committing zina (i know masturbation is wrong but it stops me from committing worse sins).

My question is during ramadan - if I masturbate is my fast invalid? Does it make a difference if I masturbate at night?
