Ask an Alim

Is it permissible to touch ones own thigh for sexual pleasure?

Q:

Asalmualykum,

is it permissible to touch ones own thigh for sexual pleasure? Is lucid dreaming allowed before marriage? And can one put pressure on their private parts to achieve a nocturnal emission? Or is all sexual pleasure not allowed before marriage?

A:

Wa alaykum salaam
Thank you for your question.

Any sort of self pleasure if done with the intention of ejaculation is haram whether it is before marriage or after.
Also any action (self pleasure ) which normally leads to ejaculation is haram even if not done with the intention of ejaculation.

– lucid dreaming which leads a person towards haram – is not allowed.
