Taharat – Self-Stimulation


Asalam o alikum. I am working in another country. There are people from many nationalities and religions.

1) We have common toilets/rest rooms. After the non-muslims have used it they don’t care about proper cleanliness and we have to use the same. Can I perform salah after that or I can’t. As sometimes the toilet seat is not clean and yet I wash it but am not satisfied with it.

2) I live alone and sometimes desires get hold of me. Can a man like me fulfil his desire by self stimulation.



Waalaykum Salaam,
1) The fact that you wash it, makes the toilet clean hence you can pray after that.
2) Please refer to this link for your answer: Masturbation in Islam

With thanks and regards,
