Q: I am a 15 year old Muslim boy. My question is that is masturbation also not allowed for teenagers who are not married. With all due respect I do not go against Quran and Hadith but this topic isn’t mentioned in it specifically. I mean if masturbation stops us from zina and watching porn before marriage shouldn’t it be allowed for the unmarried?


A: The thing that will stop you permanently is nikaah.

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