What should a single person do, when marriage is too difficult, and he has committed masturbation?

Can you please list some of the punishments of the hereafter for someone who commits this action?
Can you suggest a special Dua for such a person (who commits this sin)?
Is it possible for God to forgive this person after they have realized what they are doing is wrong, yet they don’t stop?

Masturbation is haram (forbidden); this prohibition extends to all people and no-one is allowed to offer any type of excuse for committing such a sin. Those who experience difficulty in executing a canonical marriage contract, ought to weaken their sexual appetite and inhibit all predisposing factors to masturbate by means of the following courses of action:



Keeping their facial and pubic hair long

Refraining from eating excessively nourishing foods

Refraining from contemplating sexual matters or observing sexually-related materials

Avoiding being alone at home or elsewhere

Such an individual must decide to disassociate oneself from this act, with firm resolution, and earnestly beseech Allah’s assistance in relation to abandoning such a satanic and harmful act.


That which is evident is that this action is a major sin and the Holy Qur’an has regarded it as blameworthy; one who executes such an action deserves punishment in the Hereafter. Concerning the type of punishment awaiting such a person, suffice it to say that Allah knows, period.


No specific supplication seems to be coined in relation to the issue of masturbation; naturally, supplicating to Allah – in any language – imploring His assistance in delivering you from such a harmful sin is deemed proper and decent.


Allah has categorically declared that He forgives those who [a] regret their having sinned, (b) repent and (c) sincerely intend not to re-execute the sin. Surely, however, those who do not abide by the above conditions oughtn’t await Allah’s forgiveness. Nevertheless, its always possible for one who has truly regretted and repented to be deceived by Satan and to repeat his past sin; on such occasions, one is required to repent again and never be negligent in relation to Allah’s mercy and grace. One must acknowledge that even after breaking one’s repentance a hundred times, despair has no place before Allah.

    • I just have one question, at this stage: Do Shias believe that their Imams are infallible?
    • What would they do? Send him to prison? Then what? He’ll just divorce my mum and leave. Mum doesn’t work. She’s never worked as she’s a housewife. How would she support our big family. And what ever happens, he remains my father. Prophet Ibrahim still loved and pleaded with Azar even though he wasn’t his biological father so how do you expect me to report him? And if I did, the long court processes and the money difficulties would be too much, how could I bear this while still going to school. I see school as more important than reporting MY father because regardless of anything, at least he still keeps a roof on top of my head. And won’t this be unfair for my siblings who love him as he never hurt them. They won’t understand why I would do that, but they still love him.
    • Here we go again. Because of unfortunately misguided thoughts and assumptions, the discussion/conversation has descended into name calling and insults.  Shias who readily insult, curse and malign others are unfortunately the most cowardly of Our Shia. Ask them to defend innocent Shia being slaughtered by wahabis in Parichinar, Yemen, Syria or Iraq and they have the most convenient excuses. They personify the arrogance of Shaytan towards Adam because of self righteous over inflation of their egos. Humility is a term not native to their vocabulary. Akhlaq, manners, respect, controlling anger, showing others the errors of their ways thru peace and kindness, these are the true legacies of Our Imams. By all means my dear brothers demonstrate your True Nobilty thru Ahlul Bayt like actions, OR alternatively make the Ziosaudis happy and become Shaytan like and show how humans can be described in Sura AT Teen :SUMA RADADNAHO AS FALA SAFEY LEEEN.
