Masturbation not allowed in Islam


Salam. I have recently gotten into islam Alhamdulillah and am single teenager and need guidance. My question is what does Islam say about masturbation. I know theirs a difference of opinion and I looked at many articles online some allowing it some forbidding it. I recently made istikhara for Allah’s guidance and i’m looking to consult others to form an opinion. I ask this question because I have stopped masturbating for a few weeks now and I have been experiencing wet dream far more often. My life has been a bit harder and if it is not forbidden it will remove a huge burden from my life, if it is forbidden I will try my best to please Allah SWT hoping for rewards in the hereafter. I ask for your help and am eager for your reply!
