Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
i see your site on my friends computer today. the question and answer is about masturbation. what about for women. also we need the sex and cannot marry because we a not allowed or nobody want us.
if we do the masturbation is it also sin. if we do the masturbation do we have to make full ghusl because even we come there is no discharge please answer to me soon
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Masturbation is a sin, whether done by a man or a woman. The ghusl or full bath is obligatory on a person, whether man or woman, when they reach their climax of sexual excitement or orgasm.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.4 Narrated by Abdullah
We were with the Prophet while we were young and had no wealth whatever. The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "O young people! Whoever among you can marry, should marry, because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty (i.e. his private parts from committing illegal sexual intercourse etc.), and whoever is not able to marry, should fast, as fasting diminishes ones sexual power."
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
