I have a question regarding my personal problems. Long ago I used to masturbate , But Alhumdulillah ,with the grace of Allah S.W.T i was able to overcome it and have left that filthy habit for around more than 3 -3.5 years. But now from around past 2 or more years, I face a problem during sleeping. While sleeping I start moving against the bedding (as someone would move while doing intercourse) I don’t know when do i start moving during my sleep and by the time I gain my actual consciousness I am already moving against the bedding and about to eject. Sometimes when i gain my consciousness .. i am able to stop this moving , thereby preventing any ejection..and sometimes I just cant do it since the ejection is just about to take place…. It gives me the same feeling as masturbating when i move ….. BUT I DON’T WANT TO MASTURBATE , NEITHER I WANT TO DO THIS FILTHY THING DURING MY SLEEP OR ANYTIME… BUT I ALWAYS GAIN THE CONSCIOUSNESS WHEN THE EJECTION IS JUST ABOUT TO TAKE PLACE- AND ALL OF THIS STARTS WITHOUT MY WILL( i DON’T KNOW HOW DOES THIS BEGINS WHILE I AM SLEEPING – could it be the case that some shaytan or jinn makes this happens)? Please tell me a way to get out of this problem I also try reciting Ayat al kursi before sleeping ..but there is no change in this problem. sometimes it happens continuously for 2-3 days sometimes not at all for 10 or more days . Also do tell me some amal which can be helpful to me to stop this. I am very disturbed at the moment because of this as this also causes the waste of sperm which would be a problem in my marital life.
Human being is not answerable for acts he commits in a state of sleeping. But, the thought that occupy ones mind in awakening state they are reflected in sleeps. Therefore, first of all you should shun from such thoughts and promise not to let them in, and in case such thoughts creep in you should repent to Allah and cast away it from your mind. Pray the below dua with Ayatul Kursi:
أعوذ بکلمات اللہ التامات من غضبہ و عقابہ و شر عبادہ و من ھمزات الشیاطین و أن یحضرون
And, recite isteghfar (استغفار) and change the side in case such thought comes in your mind while going to sleep. Discard such thinking when you find yourself doing the movement. Try to overcome this habit, in-sha-Allah this it will go away.
Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
