Mubaarak Olayemi Ismail 

A known brother walked up to me after the Jumuah service  and we exchanged pleasantries, "I have some problems I need to discuss with you " he began, "they are three... Let me begin with the worst... I'm into masturbation". He looked up to my face, I thought he hoped that I'll be surprised or angry with him, but what he saw was the opposite. He was really sincere with himself and we discussed about the matter,  I pray that Allah ease his affairs and everyone of us.

Masturbation is among the most prevalent sins among youths of today, you see them spending more time in the bathroom under the pretence of taking a thorough bathing and many others stay indoors alone pretending to be reading or dressing up, I have heard of several cases, online and offline and I noticed that victims of this erroneous sin often have the same story, they are mostly people that live with religious and strict parents, people that lived in hostels and being forced to it by school brother and school sisters, especially at same-sex schools and many others who basically don't know it's ruling under sharee'ah and see it as a way to escape Zina.

Some others, especially females, knew masturbation is haraam and they also know its consequences but they don't know that they are into it, Masturbation is not until you make use of a holdable stimulant, it is anything you do to yourself to stimulate your sexual urge so as to reach orgasm, with or without  insertion. Masturbation is haraam under the ruling of Sharee'ah, Allah says in Surah Al Muhminoon v. 5-7:

And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts) [5] Except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, for then, they are free from blame [6] But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors[7]

It is explicit from the above verses of Holy Quran that any thing that gives you sexual satisfaction apart from your legal spouse is haraam, either a living thing or a non living thing. It should also be considered that masturbation comes with a lot of consequences that could wreck a healthy living on the planet, it ranges from physical health disorders, sexual health deterioration, mental and psychological ailments and many other hazards that threaten a healthy living, Allah will never allow anything that will cause damage and destruction to us, Allah states in Surah Baqarah that:

Verse 195:

وَأَنفِقُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَلَا تُلْقُوا بِأَيْدِيكُمْ إِلَى التَّهْلُكَةِ وَأَحْسِنُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُحْسِنِينَ

And spend in the Cause of Allah (i.e. Jihad of all kinds, etc.) and do not throw yourselves into destruction (by not spending your wealth in the Cause of Allah), and do good. Truly, Allah loves Al-Muhsinun (the good-doers).

The subsequent episodes will explain the consequences of masturbation and hints to stop its addicting, watch this space.

You may not be involved in it, but you should read it to enlighten and advise other people.

May Allah ease our affairs.
