Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

Firstly, we do acknowledge that it is common to be faced with such desires in this age. It is important for you to also asses the causes of these desires. Are they just natural causes or is the natural desire aggravated by for example, intermingling, seeing inappropriate pictures, reading inappropriate literature etc. If so, you should abstain from all these things that aggravate your desires. If the desires are purely natural then you should resolve to fasting, as fasting was prescribed by Nabi (SAW) for those who are not married.

ومن لم يستطع فعليه بالصوم فإنه له وجاء (Sahih Al Bukhari Vol:2 Pg: 280 Darul Fikr)                

Moreover, you should adopt Taqwa and be steadfast in your Salaah as Allah Ta’ala says in the Quran:

إن الصلاة تنهى عن الفحشاء والمنكSurely Salaah restrains from shamelessness and evil       

  (Verse: 29:45)

 

If you adhere to the above mentioned advice and you also keep fasts, but you are unable to get married due to some Shari’ excuse, then it would be permissible for you to “suppress” your uncontrollable desires if you honestly fear committing Zina. However, it is not permissible to make it a habit as that will be like masturbation.

 

Raddul Muhtaar Vol: 2 Pg: 399 (H.M. Sa’eed Company)

  • وكذا الاستمناء بالكف وإن كره تحريما لحديث ناكح اليد ملعون ولو خاف الزنا يرجى أن لا وبال عليه
  • ( قوله : ولو خاف الزنى إلخ ) الظاهر أنه غير قيد بل لو تعين الخلاص من الزنى به وجب ؛ لأنه أخف وعبارة الفتح فإن غلبته الشهوة ففعل إرادة تسكينها به فالرجاء أن لا يعاقب
  • وفي السراج إن أراد بذلك تسكين الشهوة المفرطة الشاغلة للقلب وكان عزبا لا زوجة له ولا أمة أو كان إلا أنه لا يقدر على الوصول إليها لعذر قال أبو الليث أرجو أن لا وبال عليه وأما إذا فعله لاستجلاب الشهوة فهو آثم

Raddul Muhtar Vol: 2 Pg: 47 (H.M. Sa’eed Company)

(الاستمناء حرام) أي بالكف إذا كان لاستجلاب الشهوة، أما إذا غلبته الشهوة وليس له زوجة ولا أمة ففعل ذلك لتسكينها فالرجاء أنه لا وبال عليه كما قاله أبو الليث، ويجب لو خا ف الزنا

 

And Allah knows best
