f:807 -    Habit of masturbation, what to do?
Country : Withheld,
Name : submittername
Question:     I have the bad habit of masturbation.  Please guide me.
............................................................................
Answer:     After mentioning the wife and the slave girl, Allah Ta'ala says:

But whoever desires someone beyond these (lawful women), it is these people who are transgressors (and disobedient).  Surah Mominoon (23:7)

It is given in Tafseer Jalalyn that this includes masturbation as well.

This shows that masturbating is to transgress the limits of Allah Ta'ala and disobey him.

There are many harmful effects of this act as well.  In extreme cases, it may lead to impotence as well.  Have the fear of Allah Ta'ala and refrain from this.  The person who is habituated to this should marry as early as possible and should perform Nafl (optional) fasts until then.

And Allah knows best.
