A Muslim cleric has warned that men who pleasure themselves could make their hands pregnant in the afterlife.
Turkey’s Hürriyet Daily News reports that Mucahid Cihad Han made the comments on a live TV broadcast after a married man called his show to say he could not stop masturbating, even on holy pilgrimage to Mecca and even while circling the Kaaba keeping his hands hidden under his white robe.
Han responded that masturbation was a sin in Islam. He added:
“Moreover, one hadith states that those who have sexual intercourse with their hands will find their hands pregnant in the afterlife, complaining against them to God over its rights.”
“If our viewer was single, I could recommend he marry, but what can I say now after he’s been choking the chicken?”
The self-styled televangelist advised the viewer to “resist Satan’s temptations” and keep his hands where people can see them, and by all means refrain from making the cleric’s lunch!
The masturbation issue is controversial in Islam as there are varying opinions on how permissible masturbation can be. The Koran has no clear reference to the act and many hadiths (teachings of Mohammed outside of the Koran) are of questionable authenticity. Some scholars are saying Mohammed masturbated with Syrian cactus leaves in’an effort to keep his wits about him.’ Others say Mohammed paid underlings to masturbate openly while he preached in his tent.
Few Islamic scholars consider it “haram” (forbidden), with most considering it “makruh” (disliked or offensive). Some even say it is permissible in certain circumstances, such as avoiding temptation to commit adultery, when your camel is away, or when a ravishing 9 year old girl isn’t available for your pleasure.
Han later admitted that he often masturbated with his hands but later came down with the clap and stopped.
