Now updated: Ramadan calendar -


I am a 16 year old girl and I want to know is masturbation makruh or haraam? Also I heard that masturbation is allowed when one can't marry and since I am still a child for obvious reasons I am not yet able to marry so would this make it right for me to masturbate?

Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates that the Prophet of Allah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “The person who performs marriage [nikah] with his hands (i.e. masturbates) is cursed.” (Fatawa Razaviyya, Vol. 10, p.80)

And Quran says the same:

5 And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts)

6 Except from their wives or (the slaves) that their right hands possess, - for then, they are free from blame;

The exception is only wife and guarding chastity means guarding from masturbation.

Hence its haram.

Instead you are commaded to fast as it diminishes sexual power.

what does that mean "that your right hand possess"? you are allowed to have sex with your slaves?

There are rights of slaves if you want to see?

"rights of slaves"? like what? wear the same clothes as the master? eat the same food. not work any harder than the master? earn money and keep it, if the master says ok? own property, with master's permission? they can buy their freedom? to manumit a slave cancels out a great sin? i guess that one ismore for the master's benefit. although you get to be free, so freedom is a good thing? are these the rights you are going to enlighten me with?

can a slave refuse to have sex with her master? do they have the right not to be a slave?

It is haram. And if someone can not marry, then should fast. And one more thing, when something is makhrooh, do not do it. We want the love of Allah(SWT) so try your best to avoid sins.

Again clarifying.... it is haram to masturbate.

Asslamu Alaikom Wa Rahma...

As it is also mentioned above, masturbation is Haram, and you should fast and pray to get rid of masturbation. but if you are somehow not able to fast then you may need to mentally and psychologically do some practices to clean your mind out of masturbation. May Allah (SWT) help you.
