Masturbation in Islam

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za
Q: Is masturbation allowed in Islam?

A:
Masturbation is forbidden in Islam. Sayyidina Ataa’ was asked regarding this. He said that a group of people will be resurrected on Qiyaamah and their hands will be pregnant. It will be these people who had been doing this and did not repent. Their fault will be witnessed by everyone on Qiyaamah. Sayyidina Sa’eed ibni Jubayr says that Allah will punish those people who play with their private parts.
