Question

 

Are the husband and wife allowed to masturbate with their own hands in front of each other till orgasm?

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

It is mentioned in the verse “…and who guard their private parts except for their wives or from those (slave-girls) owned by their right hand, however, those who seek beyond that are transgressors”, commentating on this verse most jurists and commentators include masturbation as a prohibited method of satisfying sexual desires[1]. Hence, it is prohibited to use one’s own hand to satisfy sexual desires regardless of whether the spouse is present or not, it is mentioned by scholars that it is permissible to use the wife’s hand to arouse the husband and vise versa instead of one’s own hand.[2]
