I really haven't heared a suitable argument on why masturbation is not allowed. I have read references from Hadith but nothing that outright explicitly forbids it. Masturbation is not genital intercouse so I don't see how that would violate the "no sex before marriage" policy. In fact masturbation is safer than genital sex between married couples, but that is the medical aspect of it. As far as religious I have yet to discuss this with an Imam or an Alim regarding the issue. I've come up with the conclusion that masturbation is seen as a cultural taboo because in certain cultures the appreciation of the body was not accepted. In most conservative socieities men don't express themselves or discuss their sexuality between themselves.

Ask a Question 

Masturbation is Haraam (unlawful).

This is the ruling of the four Madhaahibs viz. Maliki, Shafe, Hanafee and
one riwaayah (narration) from Imaam Hanbalee. They have drawn their
conclusions from the following proofs:

PROOFS FROM THE QURN
* Allah Tala says:
'And those who guard their private parts from their wives and those
(slave-girls) which their right-hands own - so there is no blame upon them.
Then whoever seeks beyond that (which is lawful), they are the
transgressors.

The intended meaning of these Aayat is clear. Allah Tala has praised the
believers for guarding their private parts from that which He has made
forbidden for them. Allah has permitted them to approach their wives and
slave-girls. Thereafter, these words of Allah Tala follow: 'Whoever seeks
beyond that which is lawful are oppressors who overstep from Halaal
(permitted) towards Haraam (prohibited).

Hafiz ibn Katheer (RA) writes Imaam Shaafe (RA) and those who have agreed
with him have concluded that masturbation is Haraam from this Aayat.' He
says: 'Masturbation is excluded from these two types which Allah has made
Halaal, viz. wives and slave-girls.

* Similarly, these Fuqahaa (Jurists) have drawn their conclusion from the
following Aayat:
'And those who do not find the means to marry should remain chaste until
Allah gives them resources by His grace.'

This Aayat shows masturbation to be Haraam because of two reasons: Firstly,
in this Aayat Allah Tala has given the command of chastity and, according
to the principles of Fiqh, a command (an imperative) denotes Wujoob
(incumbency, obligation). Hence to remain chaste is Waajib (compulsory) and
wherever chastity is Waajib it becomes Waajib to refrain from that which is
contrary to it, for example, adultery, fornication, and sodomy. This is due
to the fact that obligatory chastity will not materialise except by complete
refrainment from all that which is contrary to chastity.
Secondly: in this Aayat, Allah Tala has made chastity obligatory on those
who are unable to execute the command of Nikah. Here Allah Tala has not
determined any connection or link between marriage and chastity. Hence, this
demands that masturbation should be Haraam. And if assuming, it was
permissible, then Allah Tala would have mentioned it at this point because
this was the place of explanation. The silence maintaned by Allah Tala with
regard to it at a place which requires its explanation, denotes that
masturbation is Haraam.

Imaam Qurtubi (RA) has written in the Tafseer of this Aayat: 'And when Allah
Tala has not determined any order between Nikah and chastity, then this
shows that besides these two, everything else is Haraam. However, this
Hurmat (unlawfulness) does not include slave-girls because another command
of the Qurn makes them Mubaah (permissible), viz.
'That which the right-hands earn (i.e. slave-girls).' Hence, in this manner
an addition of slave-girl has come. Masturbation, however still remains
Haraam.
'Those who seek beyond this (i.e. wives and slave-girls) are transgressors.'
(Marij 31)

Under the Tafseer of this Aayat, Qaadhi Thanaullah Paani Patti writes:
'Imaam Baghawi has deduced from this Aayat that masturbation is Haraam.'

PROOFS FROM AHAADITH
* Similarly, the Fuqahaa have drawn their conclusion from a Hadith reported
by Abdullah bin Masod (Radhiallaahu nhu) in Bukhari and Muslim. He reports
that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu layhi Wasallam) said, 'O group of youth!
Whoever from among you can marry should do so because it keeps the gaze low
and it protects the private parts. And he who cannot marry should make it
compulsory upon himself to fast because it breaks lust.'
Nabi (Sallallaahu layhi Wasallam) directed the person who is incapable of
bearing the burden on Nikah towards Sawm (fasting). If assuming,
masturbation was permissible, Rasulullah (Sallallaahu layhi Wasallam) would
have mentioned it at this point. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu layhi Wasallam)
however maintained silence. Hence, this indicates that masturbation is
Haraam because silence at the place of explanation gives the benefit of
restriction.

* Some of the Fuqahaa have drawn their conclusion from a narration reported
by Hasan bin Arfah that Nabi (Sallallaahu layhi Wasallam) said, 'Seven
persons are such that Allah will not look at them on the Day of Qiyaamat nor
will He purify them nor will He include them among the learned and Allah
will enter them into Jahannam. They will enter Jahannam first except for
those who repent. As those who repent Allah will accept their repentance.

1. A person who masturbates.
2. A person who performs the act of sodomy.
3. The person upon whom the act of sodomy is performed.
4. A perpetual drunkard.
5. The person who hits his parents so much that they appeal for help.
6. The person who harms his neighbours so much so that they curse him.
7. The person who commits adultery with his neighbour's wife. (Ibn Katheer
vol. 5 p. 458)

Hadhrat Anas (Radhiallaahu nhu) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu
layhi Wasallam) said, 'The person who performs Nikah with his hands (i.e.
masturbates) is cursed. (Tafseer Mazhari vol. 12 p. 94)

SAYINGS OF OUR PIOUS PREDECESSORS WITH REGARD TO MASTURBATION
* Saed bin Jubayr (Radhiallaahu nhu) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu
layhi Wasallam) said, 'Allah Tala will inflict a punishment on a group of
people because they played with their private parts.'
* Attaa (RA) says, 'Some people will be resurrected in such a condition that
their hands will be pregnant, I think they are those who masturbate.'

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Thank you for the answer.
 
But we need to create awareness about it.People are shy to discuss such topics.In my school and college almost everyone talks about it and doing it.
 
Yes,we need to create awareness about it then because all youn unmarried people are doing it.And it has become a habit so quiting it is just like quiting smoking.
 
So how can we quite it now because its temptating to control.Ive managed to last about 2 weeks not doing it,so far.

Allow sw declares one must protect their chastity until they get married, masturbating is not protecting your chastity. And Allah sw knows best. If I wasn't so busy, I would have loved to expand on this...take care

Judge the deed, not the breed. Islam & Muslims are two different things, a Muslim should not necessarily be associated with Islam.

How can a man be chaste? Masturbation is not vaginal intercourse...

Being chaste is being pure in spirit. Its not neccessarily a physical state. A chaste woman who's raped, remains chaste.
 
Masturbation is certainly haraam, considered to be a lesser form of zina. However as some scholars opine, if a person is in a situation that will lead to zina and had to chose between zina and masturbation, the lesser of the two evils may be chosen and Allah is Most Forgiving. Habitual masturbation is not excusable.

Okay, I'm not a Muslim, but I have to comment on this because it's just plain illogical:
This Aayat shows masturbation to be Haraam because of two reasons: Firstly, in this Aayat Allah Tala has given the command of chastity and, according to the principles of Fiqh, a command (an imperative) denotes Wujoob (incumbency, obligation).
Okay, but what does masturbation have to do with chastity?  Isn't that just begging the question, i.e. assuming the conclusion you are trying to prove?
 
And if assuming, it was permissible, then Allah Tala would have mentioned it at this point because this was the place of explanation. The silence maintaned by Allah Tala with regard to it at a place which requires its explanation, denotes that masturbation is Haraam.
But again, doesn't this assume the conclusion?  Why does masturbation "require an explanation" in a passage discussing marriage and chastity?
 
If the mere silence of the Quran on a subject is sufficient to declare it haram, then the list of things that are haraam becomes endless.  I guess even using a computer would be haraam.
