It is pretty much a sin in every religion, including Islam! There is a quote saying, "Whoever Allah protects, from the evil of what is between their jaws and between their legs, will enter Paradise, "meaning those who touch those places (lips/genitals) will go to Hell.

I don't understand how you get "those who touch those places will go to hell" out of that.

Can't touch your lips? Why in the world would that be a sin. This makes NO sense.

The Hadeeth is :

Sahl bin Sa'd (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "Whosoever gives me a guarantee to safeguard what is between his jaws and what is between his legs, I shall guarantee him Jannah."

[Al-Bukhari].

It is not about touch ... it is about keeping them away from sin ...

Some say its sin ...some say its not. But what do you say to yourself.

"Sin" is the action which actually hurting oneself or others. for example .."Rape" is a sin because it hurts other. Taking Drugs is Sin because it hurts yourself.

Now you tell me is masturbating hurts or feels good to you? (It wont hurts other, and it wont hurts you either (as per science it wont harm your body).

Now you do what you like to do ! God look at your heart not at your pants.

Islam isn't a religion. Are you talking about the Muslim religion? Anyways it's just about a sin in every religion.

I think you've got that backwards, a Muslim is an adherent of Islam. Muslim is the person, Islam is the religion.
Report as
Yeah, Islam is a religion and a Muslim is a follower of Islam .. Islam: Christianity, Muslim::Christian.
Report as
No it isn't.
Report as
Whatever .. That's not really the point ...
Report as
Islam is a religion. The followers of Islam are called Muslims.
I'm a Muslim. I think I would know that.
Report as
Like I said that wasn't the point.
Report as
Okay. But I thought you should know anyway.

Yeah...it's haram.
Btw, when we have questions about Islam, it's best if we ask a Muslim scholar. That way we can be 100% sure that we've gotten proper answers.
