I am a male university student. Here the university environment is not so well. I am 25 years old. At present, I don't have enough financial support to be got married. Again It is not possible for me to continuously fasting because I have to do a lot of work and I am not physically so much strong. Often I feel extreme excitement and it makes me lose concentration in my study. Then to release the excitement I do masturbation. I am doing it from the age of 14. I have performed toubah for several times but failed to protect it again and again. Now I have lost all the hope to get rid of it.  Is it permissible for me to masturbate in this condition? if I cant stop it , what kind of sin it would be for me?

Ref. No. 41/849

In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful

The answer to your question is as follows:

One is not allowed to go though such dirty act in any case.  If one is under extreme excitement, he is obliged to marry a suitable girl in simple way at earliest. Nevertheless, when a person has no means to marry, he should use other means to avoid excitement and he should consult a Hakeem or Doctor for treatment. Meanwhile he should keep in touch with a pious person (sheikh) and read Wazifa to reduce his excitement. One has to lower his gazes too and must not look at girls. May Allah protect us from evil acts! Ameen

And Allah knows best
