Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

According to some studies we can find out that Ejalucating doesn't harm the health if it is done in a controlled way and it prevents cancer and is good for health. So is it haram in Islam? According to what i know, Islam allows one to drink Alchohol if its required for saving his life so if Ejalucation can help us to protest cancer and it can preserve our health, then why would it be considered haram?

Yes. The view among the scholars (based on authentic proof from Qur'an/Sunnah) is that masturbation is disliked (mukruh) to say the least and forbidden (haram) to say the most.. majority saying it is forbidden. [And I will add, since some scholars discuss this, if you fear that you will fall into zina, i.e premarital sex (major sin), then it is better to commit the minor sin (masturbate) than to commit the major sin (zina).]

And your analogy is not valid, my dear brother. There are many ways that you can try to prevent cancer without having to masturbate (sin). It is a statement from a scholar among the Salaf that you will not find the 'cure' in something forbidden. The harm of masturbation is clear. So try to avoid it.

The real solution to satisfying your desires is to get married. Or to fast, which reduces sexual energy. These are the two ways suggested by our beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم.

It doesn't help you to prevent from cancer. No link between them. I'll challenge you to prove ur statement in the light of science.

Here’s a quote from ScienceDaily, published January 27, 2009:

Men who are very sexually active in their twenties and thirties are more likely to develop prostate cancer, especially if they masturbate frequently, according to a study of more than 800 men. However the UK research team also found that frequent sexual activity in a man’s forties appears to have little effect and even small levels of activity in a man’s fifties could offer protection from the disease. Most of the differences were attributed to masturbation rather than sexual intercourse.

The study, led by the University of Nottingham, looked at the sexual practices of more than 431 men who had been diagnosed with prostate cancer before the age of 60, together with 409 controls. Men who took part in the study were asked about all aspects of their sex life from their twenties onwards, including how old they were when they became sexually active, how often they masturbated and had intercourse, how many sexual partners they had had and whether they had had any sexually transmitted diseases.

“We were keen to look at the links between sexual activity and younger men as a lot of prostate cancer studies focus on older men as the disease is more prevalent in men over 50” says lead author Dr Polyxeni Dimitropoulou, who is now at the University of Cambridge.’

A 2003 Australian study found that men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer. According to this study: ‘Disease-causing toxins build up in your urogenital tract and when you rub one out, you flush the bad guys out of your system’.

Another study claimed that masturbation reduces nasal congestion. Ah… I know - at the age of 69 - why my snout is permanently blocked!
