Have you read the title twice already? I am sure you have. So yes, this happened. Hurriyet Daily News reported that Mucahid Cihad Han, while responding to a viewer’s question on live TV said that those who masturbate will find their hands pregnant and also that the man will have to look after his hands’ offspring in the afterlife.
This Turkish preacher had made the comments in response to a viewer’s query during a broadcast on live TV. First, he was puzzled by the question, but later on, he also warned him to ‘resist Satan’s temptations’.
The person who asked the question was forced to repeat it several times to Mucahid Cihad Han and he was finally advised that the act was forbidden.
‘Moreover,’ Han said, ‘One [saying] states that those who have sexual intercourse with their hands will find their hands pregnant in the afterlife, complaining against them to God over its rights. If our viewer was single, I could recommend he marry, but what can I say now?’
Later on, he took to Twitter to say, “Lets keep ourselves out of trouble.”
He later posted on Twitter an interpretation of Islam which he said proved masturbation was forbidden, adding: ‘Lets keep ourselves out of trouble.’
However, there are various interpretations in Islam – if or not the act is forbidden. While some claim is it simply frowned upon, or disliked, others have said it is actually permissible should it help stop a man from committing adultery or other sins.
