Fantasizing while masturbating

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Before my marriage I used to masturbate and I used to think about my mother in law having sex with me while masturbating. I used to think about taking out her bra and nikars. Is my nikaah valid or broken by just thinking about her. I didn’t touch her with lust.


A: Your nikaah has not broken. However, it is not permissible for you to masturbate as well as think of your mother in law in this way. You should sincerely repent to Allah Tala and make a firm resolve that you will not repeat this in the future.

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