Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
Is Masturbation Haram? The reason I'm asking this cuz I have so many friendssome say its haram some say its a natural thing. It keeps you away from bad deeds...
If Someone is Fasting and he gets horny somehow as you know hornism is anatural thing it comes and goes by itself. So doing masturbating while on fasting is it bad or it doesn't matter? some people say it doesn't matter cuz its a natural thing, some say it matters - your fast break if you do the masturbation??
1. The fiqh regarding masturbation may be found in Related Q&A.
2. The very meaning of Islam is submission: we submit our bodies, hearts, minds, and souls to Allah Most High, out of thankfulness for the blessing and life-giving light of His religion.
Allah tests our slavehood. Many people have 'natural' tendencies and urges towards that which Allah has declared unlawful. This is our test with Allah Most High.
Allah Most High said in the Qur'an,
As for the fast: masturbation that leads to ejaculation invalidates the fast.
