Taharat – Self-Stimulation

Q:

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.

Thanks

A:

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: http://askanalim.org/node/2451
