Question on the ruling of masturbation.
First, I'm a muslim. I try to do the 5 pillars
I pray (5 times a day)
I'll die by the shahada
I hope to go to mecca (I haven't yet)
and I (don't have a job yet) but I'd love to give to the poor.
I'm 16, I just got back into praying and don't want to sin. I don't masturbate often, I haven't in 4 days. Is masturbation haram if only done every couple days. After masturbation you don't have sexual thoughts for days. It's fairly helpful. I don't want to sin though.
The other thing is Sura 6:119 says "And why should you not eat of that upon which the name of Allah has been mentioned while He has explained in detail to you what He has forbidden you, excepting that to which you are compelled. And indeed do many lead [others] astray through their [own] inclinations without knowledge. Indeed, your Lord - He is most knowing of the transgressors."
Basically, if something isn't explicitly in the Qur'an forbidden then it isn't haram right? Please help me I don't want to sin.
