Masturbation A Disastrous Problem Faced by the Youth
Many people are well aware of Islam’s ruling with regard to masturbation and are convinced of its unlawfulness.

Amongst the distorted ways towards which the youth have resorted to satisfy their lust is masturbation-a fast spreading, vile act. This act has become common amongst a large sector of youth. Many young boys and girls have become entrapped in the snare of masturbation. In addition, there also exists a lack of those words which will breathe into a person the spirit of determination, the power of intention and the revival of the sweetness of Imaan and the Noor of Yaqeen (conviction) in the heart. This is most needed by those involved in this habit. It is hoped that Allah Subhanahu Wataa’la will grant the reader benefit by some of the treatments mentioned hereunder-especially from that which has been taken from His Words, the words of His Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam. Hence, it is necessary to give importance to this topic and explain the law of Islam with regard to this act, to list its harms, it disastrous consequences and to prescribe treatment to root out this act.
