Sexual relations

What can I read to stop masturbating?

Question: One person is a masturbator. He does not refrain from his act. He is reminded every time. Can you write what will happen at the Resurrection and what supplication he should read that will make his habit disappear?

Sender: Ashraf Ali Khan, Muradabad in India


Answer:

He is sinful, disobedient, he is a major sinner because of his stubbornness, a transgressor [fasiq]. On the day of resurrection, palms of such people will be raised pregnant, through which he will be ashamed in front of a major assembly if he does not repent, and Allah forgives whom He wills and punishes whom He wills.
 
He should do a lot of La-Hawl Sharif1, and when Shaytan calls him to this act, then he should immediately alert his heart to Allah while reciting La-Hawl, pray steadfastly 5 times a day, he should meditate Surah al-Ikhlas daily after the morning [fajr] prayer. And Allah knows best.
