Forgetfully masturbating while fasting

Q: One woke up in the day of Ramadhaan. He had made sehri and began his fast. When he woke up, forgetting he was fasting, he masturbated. Thereafter, he remembered he was fasting and continued his fast for the rest of the day. What is the ruling for his fast?

A: The roza will not break.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
