Salaam-u-alaykum warahmatullah, hope all my brothers and sister who read this are well. Quick question on myself & I'm sure many others.. I'm 18, alhamdulillah a practicing Muslim. We all sin on a daily basis, wether this is a major or minor sin, nevertheless a sin is a sin. One of this sins I commit is masturbation, may allah forgive me for this act. Something I have tried to quit, stop bit unfortunate after a certain period of time the urge does come back to me. I've read that we should get married young as this helps our modesty, lowering our gaze & if marriage is not on the cards then fasting as this helps our sexual desires. I've tried to fast, alhamdulillah I fast on Mondays and Thursdays for the past 2-3 months, but this urge comes to me now and again. Which I try to fight but unfortunately the urge overcomes me.
I would like to get married in the next 2 years as I've been told I'm extremely mature, well with my money and a good human being.
I'm unsure on what to try next, so far alhamdulillah I will carry on fasting, praying my 5 daily salah and asking allah for forgiveness. I just hope this urge does go away, I really do because I feel so ashamed after I have committed it.
Inshallah the answer to this comes soon and helps me aswell as others. Salaam to all my brothers and sisters, may allah guide you and myself to his jannah, to seek refuge from allah swt anger and forgive is from the sins we commit.
Salaam, your brother.x
