Is it haram to masturbate while watching porn?

In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving.

 

All praise is due to Allah. Peace and blessings be upon His Messenger Muhammad.

 

Watching porno movies is strictly prohibited and indeed a grave sin. Almighty Allah says what means “Say [also] to the believing men, [O Prophet,] that they should lower their gaze [from women that are forbidden to them] and safeguard [the chastity of] their secret parts. That is most pure for them. Indeed, Allah is all-aware of all that they do.” (An-Nur 24:30)

 

This practice has detrimental psychological effects and seriously affects one’s religiosity.

 

Masturbation is prohibited as well inferred from the Quranic verse “the ones, moreover, who are ever vigilant as to [the chastity of] their secret parts- except [in associating] with their wives, or [with] whomever their hands may rightfully possess, for, then, they are not blameworthy; but whoever seeks [ a way]  beyond this, then it is they who are the transgressors.” (Al-Mu’minun 23:5-7)

 

You need to repent sincerely to Allah and have strong resolve not to do this again. Part of this repentance is to quit all the practices that stimulate your desire, such as gazing at members of the opposite sex, watching explicit contents, etc. You need also to keep your time busy with useful activities, because leisure time is a big opportunity for the Satan to incite you for evil acts.

 

Attend congregational prayers, find religious friends, stay away from the internet as far as possible, try to memorize the Quran, practice fasting to break this appetite, try to serve your community through philanthropic activities, etc.

 

These are just example of things that fill your time and keep you away from thinking about our appetite.

 

Allah (exalted is He) said, “As to those who do not find  [means] for marriage, let them keep themselves [pure and] chaste, until God enriches them from His bounty.” (An-Nur 24:33)

 

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “Whoever among you can afford to get married, let him do so, and whoever cannot afford it let him observe fasting, for it will be a restraint for him.”

 

Pray to Allah to keep you chaste and to grant you a religious spouse.

 

Almighty Allah knows best.
