In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds and peace be upon the most honorable Messenger.
My beloved ones, I want to deliver my message and regret severely, is there anyone who can answer my question and give a solution for my problem?
I feel that the matter is beyond my capacity, but the problem is: I have a strong desire to masturbate that is directly before my period. It is important to say that my period is not regular and when I do that I feel severe regret because I memorize the whole volume of the Qur'an and I exert my efforts in worship, such as fasting, staying up at night for worship, and loving goodness, however this worries me much. It is worth mentioning that I only masturbate before my period, is there any relationship between masturbation and my period? I am 27 and I have not married yet, but I feel that this action is forbidden as if I commit adultery. When I masturbate, I recall some Ayahs and Hadiths to stop me, what should I do? I do not want to disobey Allah and I seek Allah's Forgiveness for my sin and my weakness, what is the solution?
Dear sister, welcome to Alukah Website.
Take it easy, you are fine by the will of Allah. Of the favors of Allah on us is that He facilitates repentance for His Servants of all sins and faults.
I do not know any connection between menses and masturbation, but the irregularity of your period may indicate a hormonic disorder, you should see a gynecologist to discover the secret of this relationship.
One of the effective means for any person to get rid of this bad habit is to search for other means of joy, such as: Establishing a project and extending the friendship relations with righteous women and girls that is the immune fort which shall protect you from the pressure of lust and the pressure of this habit. Reminding yourself of your achievements has a great impact on keeping a positive feeling about yourself and that will protect you from the feeling of lowness and running after Satan and his insinuations.
Finally, of Allah's Favors upon us is that you have that awareness and that great mind, so thank Allah for that.
I ask Allah to help you and grant your success, and do not forget us from your righteous invocations.
