Q: The act of masturbation is defined as rubbing ones private parts to reach climax and this is not allowed in Islam. Now my question is, is it wrong if a person without touching his privates reaches climax, for example, bouncing on ones bed facing towards the roof with the intention of climaxing yet not touching the genitals. Would this be termed as ‘masturbation’ and is it wrong Islamically?


A: These are all artificial ways, all getting to the same end. Hence, it will come under the same rule as well.

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