Q: I started pleasuring myself since I was 12. I didn’t know what it was up until I was 13/14. It eventually turned into an addiction so bad that sometimes I did it in school. I tried really hard to get rid of this sinful habit by asking for Allah’s help but eventually would slip into the sin. This sinful habit ruined my life, and I don’t want it to ruin my life anymore. Also I’ve missed many prayers due to this sinful addiction. Am I supposed to make up those many prayers I missed? If yes, how should I do it. Please give me advice on how to stop this addiction and please make du’a for me and for all brothers and sisters with issues whether it is the same issue as mine or not.
A: Yes, you will have to cover up the missed salaah.
Make nikaah as soon as possible.
May Allah Ta`ala grant you all ease.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
