Allah states in the Quran, “…who guard their private parts except with their spouses or those who are legally in their possession, for in that case they shall not be blamed. However those who seek to go beyond that in lust are the ones who shall be the transgressors” (Surah Muminun: V5-7)

Most jurists have included masturbation in the prohibition and have included this in the category of those who go beyond what is permissible in satisfying ones lust. (Tafseer Qurtubi, Vol 12, P98). It is recorded in Tafseer Mazhari that Saeed ibn Jubair stated that, “Allah punished a nation who used to play with their private parts.” In Durrul Mukhtar the hadith “A person who is married to the hand is cursed (i.e. the person who masturbates)” is recorded which indicates the impermissibility of masturbation. (Vol2, P109).

From the above it is clear that masturbation is not allowed in Islam and is a sin. It is mentioned in the Hadith that a person who cannot marry should fast as this will reduce his desires. Abdullah (radi allahu anhu) narrates; we were with the Prophet while we were young and had no wealth whatever. So Allah’s Apostle said, “O young people! Whoever among you can marry, should marry, because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty (i.e. his private parts from committing illegal sexual intercourse etc.), and whoever is not able to marry, should fast, as fasting diminishes his sexual power.” (Sahih Bukhari: 7.4)

With regards to your question, the jurists have said if you not sure whether the liquid is mani or madhi then it is still obligatory to perform a ghusl.

Saaidah Aaisha Radiallahu Anha relates that the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam was asked about a man who finds wetness (semen from ejaculation) but does not remember having a wet dream. So He Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam said, “He must perform ghusl” and he was asked about a man who thinks he had a wet dream but finds not wetness. So He Sallallahu Alayhi Wasalam said: “he does not have to perform ghusl.” So Umm Sulaim Radiallahu Anha asked, if a woman finds wetness, does she have to perform ghusl? He said; yes, women are the partners of men.” (Sunan Abi Dawud p.35 v.1)

The liquid which comes out after watching any illicit material is called madhi, thus, ghusl will not be necessary, but your wudhu will break. (Raddul Muhtar p.300 v.1)

Finally, if drops of urine come out when performing sajdah your Salah will break. You will be required to redo your wudhu and Salah again.

Depending on how serious the problem of releasing the drops of urine is you may be classified as a Mazoor.

One will become a Ma’zoor only if the state of impurity lasts for one complete duration of a Salah time. If throughout this time, blood, urine or any other impurities flowed or dripped continuously, not enabling one to make wudhu and perform the Fardh Salah with purity, then one will be known as a Ma’zoor.

For example, if the illness occurred 15 minutes before isha salah (the last portion of the duration of the magrib salah), then the actual time of being a Ma’zoor will be reckoned from the start of isha salah.

During this time if the illness stopped long enough to enable one to make the faraaidh of wudhu (face, arms etc…) and just the Fardh Salah, then one will not be considered a Ma’zoor.

After qualifying as a Ma’zoor, one will remain a Ma’zoor as long as the bleeding, discharge etc… does not stop for one full Salah time.

Upon becoming a Ma’zoor, it is not necessary for the bleeding to be continuous in the succeeding Salah times.  It will suffice if the bleeding was for just a moment for one of succeeding Salah times for the person to continue to be considered a Ma’zoor.

A Ma’zoor shall make Wudhu for every Fardh Salah. The wudhu of a Ma’zoor remains valid for the duration of the Salah time and all the factors which break wudhu besides the factor responsible for making one Ma’zoor, will nullify the wudhu of a Ma’zoor. (Ahsanul Fatawa p.77 v.2 & Fatawa Darul Uloom Deoband p.298 v.1)

If your situation is so bad that you do not have time in which you are able to do the faraaidh of wudhu and read the Fardh Salah without the discharge returning then you will be considered a Ma’zoor thus it will be permitted for you to read Salah with this illness. You should do Wudhu for each Salah.

Regarding the status of your clothing the following two rules will apply:

a)    If the clothes soiled by the bleeding or urine become soiled quickly before the Salah could be completed, then it is permissible to read the Salah in that clothing.

b)    If the clothing does not soil quickly and one will be able to perform and complete the Salah without the impurity reaching the size of a dirham, (area of the hollow in the palm of the hand) then it will be necessary to wash it. Salah with such impure clothing will not be permissible. (Kitabut Taharah p.71)
