Can a Woman Use Plastic Equipment To Fulfill Her Desire

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Sheikh Shafiur Rahman


I wanted to know if a woman uses plastic equipment to fulfill the desire. Is it haram in Islam?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


Self-masturbation (without ‘sex toys’/objects) for a man or woman is considered by the majority of Hanafi scholars to be reprehensible near haram (makruh tahrimi) except when done out of a need if there is a fear of falling into fornication or when strong sexual desires distract one from religious or worldly matters and there exists no other legitimate outlet. However, it is permissible for a husband or wife to masturbate each other as part of intimacy. (Radd al-Muhtar Vol3. Pp 371 Dar ‘Alam al-Kutub)

If a woman uses an object to masturbate herself without penetration into her inner private part then it would fall under the above ruling of self-masturbation.

Only Allah knows best
