Masturbation and watching pornography

Q: I’d like to know regarding the harms of mastabation and watching pornography. Please kindly provide Ahadith of the Prophet صلّى الله عليه وسلم.


A: Shame and modesty is an integral branch of imaan. This type of behaviour is totally against modesty. Hence, a person who is behaving in this manner breaks an important branch of faith.

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