Islamic perception on masturbation with surprise you

Spread the love

In the name of God, the Most Beneficient, the Most Merciful. All praises and thanks to God who has been bestowing his blessings on us, and we ask for peace and blessings to be bestowed upon His Messenger.

Dear brethren, thanks for showing interest in learning more about the religion. It’s high time we left being in the dark, and come to light. It’s high time we stop being ignorant.Our topic of discussion is about mast-urba-tion, it is a very important topic that we all must know about as it is a thing that is very rampant among our youths, both in Islam and in Christianity, especially those that are not yet married. Our youths face lots of temptations and they are really influenced by the people and things around them.

We should all know that mast-urba-tion is perfectly acceptable in non-Muslim societies and it is something practiced by a very large number of people: the young, the single, the old, and even some married.

However, it is not like that in our Muslim societies. In Islam, we should know that rulings are mostly governed by some consideration which tend to be flexible from person to another person. The legal text which is mostly used, according to what Allah said in the Qur’an,

“Those ones who guard their sexual organs except with their legal spouses or with those who their right hands possess, for they are without blame. But for those that crave something beyond that ones, are really the transgressors.”(Suratul-Mu’mun: 5-7)

On this verse, some scholars hold on to the point that the ones being referred to in the verse are those that finds pleasure in fulfilling their sexual desire without marriage involved, are the deemed transgressors. Some other scholars are on the point that the transgressors are those that engage themselves in extra-marital affairs, that is those that commits Zina (adultery).

The first view holds on thr point that mast-urba-tion is a very great sin and is a forbidden categories of fulfilling one’s sexual desires. This is the views of the Shafi’ites.

The second view holds on that mast-urba-tion does not fall under the meaning of this verse. This view is very similar to the Hanafites who believes that masturbation is undoubtedly basically forbidden.

Hanafi view
It is considered to be generally prohibited according to the Hanafi madhhab.

Maliki view
It is considered as being completely haram (i.e prohibited) according to the Sunni Imam Malik ibn Anas. It is really prohibited all the time according to the Maliki madhhab.

Shafi’i view
Also in the Shafi’i view, It is considered to be prohibited all the time. Imam Al-Shafi’i also stated that mast-urba-tion is really considered forbidden based on the below verses from the Qur’an :

“Those ones who guard their sexual organs except with their legal spouses or with those who their right hands possess, for they are without blame. But for those that crave something beyond that ones, are really the transgressors.”(Suratul-Mu’mun: 5-7)

According to how he interpreted this, the verses clearly in forbids all kinds of illegal sexual acts (mast-urba-tion inclusive) except for the wives or that their right hand possess, and whoever seeks beyond that is the transgressor..

Hanbali view
It is generally prohibited according to the Hanbali madhhab.So, with all these, I think it’s better we conclude that Mast-urba-tion is completely prohibited, and we should all try our possible best to stay away from it.

This judgement is solely based on the Islamic judgement. If you are a Christian reading this post, please share your thoughts on this whether it is prohibited or not.
