Masturbating without ejaculating

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a person is masturbating and while he is doing he stops before he ejaculate will ghusl be waajib?


A: Taking any sexual benefit and pleasure from one’s body (through masturbation etc.) is impermissible. One should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala for getting involved in such sins, and make a firm resolve that he will not return to this sin in the future. If one did not ejaculate, ghusl will not be waajib.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
