Masturbating when one is away from home

Q: Can someone masturbate over the phone with his wife if he is away from home especially on hajj days when not in ihraam?


A: Taking pleasure from one’s body is impermissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

في الجوهرة الاستمناء حرام  وفيه التعزير ولو مكن امرأته أو أمته من العبث بذكره فأنزل كره ولا شيء عليه (الدر المختار 4/27)
