Q: I am 21year old female. Please tell me if doing self pleasure is haraam in islam? If so then what are the physical effects of this habit? How can a female leave this habit?


A: It is impermissible for one to derive sexual pleasure from one’s body e.g. masturbation. One should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala and make a firm resolve never to return to this in the future. Refer to and

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