Masturbation is Forbidden
Question:

Is masturbation unlawful?
Answer:

What is correct among the sayings of the scholars is that masturbation is unlawful. Allaah Almighty says: And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts). Except from their wives or (the slaves) that their right hands possess, - for then, they are free from blame; But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors. [1] Here, Allaah Almighty praised those who satisfy their lust with only their wives or (lawful) slaves; He Almighty also ruled that those who seek other means of satisfying their lusts are transgressors.

[1] Al-Muminun 23:5-7.
