Watching porn and masturbating

Q: I am a 24 year old virgin male and have no girl friend. For a long period I abstaind from watching porn or doing masturbation, but after like someweeks or a month the urge to do sin increase dramatically. Although at that time I have noticed I abstain for like two or three more days (having Allah’s consciousness in my mind), but when it goes out of control I commit the sin, and regret. Is it okay when you feel out of control, and you dont have any options to do marriage also, but to masturbate under these scenarios?


A: Abstain from this and get into marriage as soon as possible or at least fast every alternate day.

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