Masturbating due to living away from one’s husband

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am married and away from my husband. When I was naked, sexual thoughts came and I reached orgasm. Though I could control, I didn’t. How do I repent? Is this masturbation?


A: Beg Allah Ta`ala’s forgiveness and let your husband know that you cannot manage and that he should be living with you.

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