Sexual Problems 14item Is masturbation harmful? I quitted masturbating more than a month ago and repented, but I have OCD, and I get doubts that pop up about Islam. Whether Islam is right or no, other religions could be right, maybe there is no Allah or another god. I can’t take these doubts out of me. There are many answers, but they are not convincing. I thought about making a research by myself, but I don’t even know how and even if I knew how, I would get more doubts. I even feel kind of hopeless and desperate that why I am going to Hell? Why do I have all of these doubts? Thanks and please give good answers, because Sayed, you got to help me. You are the one with knowledge, while I am the ignorant. You may be the one who, maybe, I don’t know, certain of Heaven, while me? I don’t know which path is the right one. I cry a lot, try to pray with concentration, pray many prayers, read a lot of Du’a and recite Quran, and read Du’a for many Muslim people, especially Imam Mahdi (aj). My problem is my faith. I can’t be convinced. Then, I ask myself will I go to Hell even if I am hearing that Allah is the most merciful? Why dont Allah give mercy to me, the ignorant one who has OCD and doubt a lot? Can you please suggest me some Du’as which could help me from sexual desires? Should never hear even the breath of woman or his mother in erotic state, I want to know what the effects are of this and what a person should do if this was heard? What are the physical and spiritual effects of masturbation? Assalamo alaikum. I am writing here my problem in short because I am suffering with such a worst mental sickness for last many years. I became Homosexual years ago. I had met with various Gays and I made many homosexual friends but I left them with the passage of time. I did Taubah (repentance) many times but could not stop my sexual desires for long time and I broke my Taubah many times. Many times I performed Namaze Hajaat and prayed Allah to give me Shifa from this nasty disease but I could not overcome it. Many times I did Dua on Shabe Baraat, Shabe Miraj and Shabe Qadr but I could not recover myself. Many times I prayed between the Salats of Asr Maghrib because people told me that this time duration is too much important to make Dua. I never recovered. Even when I got married, I only intended to recover myself from homosexuality but when I got married, I realized that I could never make a sexual relation with my wife because I had no interest in women. I made such a big sin... I divorced her, as I could not give her any wedding happiness. Now, I am trying to stay away from homosexuality but I am unable to keep myself away from this sin for a long time. I request your goodself to please pray for me. I am really tired now. I am really tired and cannot control myself for long. Please tell me what should I do? What should I do? What should children be told about sexual matters and at what age? I just had a very simple question. Assuming that there was a person who was not able to get permanently married, and he could not find any one to get temporarily married to either, would it be allowed for him to masturbate in order to satisfy his reproductive urges in cases of extreme psychological and physiological stress due to sexual deprivation. I know that some Sunni scholars would say that if unable to get married a person is allowed to masturbate in order to save himself from zina or fornication and I just wanted to know what our point of view would be about this. How great a sin is istimna/masturbation? If one is unable to find a spouse, then does it become allowable if one is afflicted physically and distracted mentally due to unfulfilled natural instincts? It has been six years since I have gotten married, if I have a sexual relationship with another person, what will happen? I feel that I’m not completely satisfied with my own wife. What are the ways to get rid of lusts and lustful thoughts before going to bed? What is the cure for sexual impotence, and what are its causes? My wife has begun thinking of divorce because I am frigid and impotent. Can I make a fixed-time marriage (mutah) with a prostitute, only for the satisfaction of my sexual needs? Is this fornication (zina) or a sin? I'm very much addicted to Hand Practice (Masturbation). I know this is Haram in Islam, but I perform it every day because I don't have control on myself. So, the question is, is there any way to make it halal? Because it's impossible to stop myself!
