I feel ashamed to ask such question … sometimes I masturbate, what can you advise as how to struggle with this sin?
Scholarly answer: It is a sin which, unfortunately, is widely spread nowadays. In one of Prophet's hadith it is mentioned that the one who will be engaged in masturbation, will be deprived of Allah's blessing. I advise to get married as soon as possible or to decrease your desire observe fasting. Opinion of the psychologist: This is a widespread phenomenon, though it is not much discussed for ethical reasons. First of all, it is necessary to avoid everything that can cause sexual excitement. It appreciably will lower intensity of the act. Other important part of struggle against persuasive desires is physical activity: jogging, pulling up, push ups etc.
