Ghusal after masturbation

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Do you have to shower after masturbating?


A: It is not permissible for one to take pleasure from one’s body through masturbation. If one had committed this sin, then one should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala and make a firm resolve that one will not repeat this sin in the future. Ghusl will be compulsory if one had ejaculated through masturbation.

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