Hadith Explanation

Nikah with Hands

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The person who performs Nikah with his hands (i.e. masturbates) is cursed.” [Tafseer Mazhari]

A purpose of marriage is to lawfully satisfy your innate desires, with a partner whom you take care of, with a view to pleasing Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). So a person who masturbates (plays with his private parts) has as though married his hands, since he is satisfying his desire with them, instead of with a wife.

Masturbation, homosexuality, bisexuality, and anal intercourse are all unnatural ways of satisfying sexual desires and are Haraam (forbidden) in Islam.

“Truly is success attained by the believers…. And those who guard their private parts (from illegal sexual acts) except from their wives or what their right hands possess – for them, they are free from blame. But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors.” [Quran: Surah Al-Muminoon, Ayaat 1, 5-7]
