Ques : What do you think about this issue ??


Admin’s note : This link tried to prove that Masturbation is not prohibited in Shariyah, which is against the majority view of the Ulama.

Assalamu Alaikum.

Jazkallah for your question. I’m afraid that the answer doesn’t comply with the Shariah. Al Quran says,

فَمَنِ ابْتَغَىٰ وَرَاءَ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْعَادُونَ [٢٣:٧]

But those whose desires exceed those limits are transgressors; (23:7)

And masturbation clearly exceeds the limits mentioned before this ayah.

Mufassirs mostly said that it is prohibited for this ayah and is not allowed until one is most likely going to be involved in zina. As it is better then zina. Otherwise, it is not permitted.

Moreover, it is harmful for human body for a lot of reasons. I would like to recommend you reading this answer. http://www.askimam.org/fatwa/fatwa.php?askid=e8ad71804b1e9eca1917c9dce3d62afa
