Suhaib Webb:Mid Ramadhân Reminder

Alhamdulillâh was salâtus salâmu ‘alâ Rasūl Allâh sal Allâhu alayhi wa sallam

Mid Ramadhân Reminder by Suhaib Webb

The following is a recording done over a year ago by a dear brother. The audio is only about 10 minutes in which Imām Suhaib Webb talks about benefiting from the rest of Ramadhân that which is left over after clarifying what studies he has done. This recording was done at a masjid in Houston. Inshā‘Allâh I will try posting a second lecture done by Imām Suhaib Webb at MSA at University of Houston. Imām Suhaib Webb is a pretty good speaker and has many times very good advice but I dont necessarily agree with his approach to a few things and his methodology. Allah Knows Best.

Masturbation in Islam: Compilation of Articles and Fatwas

Bismillah Alhamdulillah was Salaatus Salaam ‘ala RasoolAllah, Sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam

In the past few days for some reason I have recieved an influx of visitors to the website and most people have been, masha’Allah reading the posts on the Fiqh of Fasting (after all it’s Ramadhan). The most popular amongst the posts for some reason (we live in the West) is the one on Masturbation. So acting upon the interests of the visitors to this website I have decided to compile a list of beneficial articles talking about Masturbation, the dangers of this habit and ways one can get rid of this addictive habit, insha’Allah. I know it sounds sick but this need sot addressed, the sooner one gets rid of this habit the better. Our religion is the religion revealed to the Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa Sallam) form none other than our Creator, Allah and there is no shame in religion. It is better we tackle this issue directly instead of shying away from it. It is sick, but it needs to be addressed.

So the first thing that I found was the Wikipedia entry on the issue of Masturbation, which is almost completely useless except for the part on its risks and the risks of compulsive masturbation, unless one likes to know about the word’s etmology, techniques for males and females, and its history in cultures and religion then one should just stick to the risks of masturbation. I would still reccomend reading these from Wikipedia-

1. Health and Psychological Effects of Masturbation

Besides this there seems to be a plethora of articles from Muslim sources that talk about the issue of masturbation and its islamic ruling, and there are a few sources that talk about how to get rid of this habit.

The Ruling on Masturbation and conditions that may allow for it

Okay, first things first, what is the ruling on Masturbation in Islam, well here it is from IslamQA, there were literally half a dozen websites that just reproduced this same fatwa again and again (and again)-

2. Ruling on Masturbation and ways to cure it (IslamQA)

The ruling seems to be the same across the board for this. If one is having trouble quitting then he should write down the tips and advice and carry it around to remind oneself.

3. Masturbation is sinful and prohibitively disliked according to Hanafi Fiqh

4. Masturbation: A disastrous problem faced by the Youth

I thought this one was a bit comical, atleast the title made me laugh a little bit-

5. Solo Sex (Male and Female Masturbation (alinaam.org)

6. Remedy for Masturbation (alinaam.org)

From Islam Online-

7. The Fatwa on Masturbation

8. How to Give Up Masturbation

9. Masturbation for Both Males and Females: A New Approach (IslamOnline)
From Fiqh mailing lists-

10. Hanafi and Hanbali ruling on Masturbation

Masturbation during Ramadhaan or Fasting

11. Masturbation in Ramadaan (IslamOnline)

12. Masturbation during Ramadaan and issues related to it (Fatwa-Online.com)

13. Invalidation of fast due to Masturbation (IslamQA)

14. Masturbation Breaks the Fast (IslamToday)

Other Non-Muslim and Secular Sources

15. Steps in Overcomming Masturbation

16. Reversing the Effects of Over Masturbation

And Allah Knows Best

May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon the Prophet, Sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, his family and companions. Ameen

Fiqh of Fasting: Exemption to the Above Invalidators

11. Above are Exempted in some cases

The fast is not broken if any of these things are done while forgetting or under coercion or because of their ignorance. Prophet (sall Allâhu’ alayhi wa sallam) said: “My ummah is forgiven for mistakes and forgetfulness and for what they are forced to do.” And the statement of Allaah:

وَلَيْسَ عَلَيْكُمْ جُنَاحٌ فِيمَا أَخْطَأْتُم بِهِ وَلَكِن مَّا تَعَمَّدَتْ قُلُوبُكُمْ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا

“And there is no sin on you concerning that in which you made a mistake, except in regard to what your hearts deliberately intend” [Surat al-Ahzaab 33:5]

Your intention comes first here. You are not intending to break the fast on your own but you are doing something that breaks it because you either forgot, or didn’t know or were forced to do it. It wouldn’t break if say dust or an insect enters the throat or one swallows their own saliva. In conclusion, the things that break the fast usually do not break it unless the following are

1– he should know the ruling

2– he should not have forgotten that he is fasting

3– he should be doing that be choice

And in the end Allah knows best.
