A Turkish televangelist has sparked social media fury after he warned Muslim men that masturbation may “leave their hands pregnant” in the afterlife.

As per Turkish media reports, Mücahid Cihad Han made the remarks in response to a viewer’s question. The viewer called in Han’s show and said he kept masturbating, although he was married, and even during Umrah.

Responding to the question, the Turkish televangelist warned that masturbation is forbidden in Islam, and claimed, “One hadith 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?" he added.

Han’s statement caused a fury on social media with one Twitter user sarcastically remarking, "Are there any hand-gynaecologists in the afterlife? Is abortion allowed there?"

“So you think that being pregnant is a God-given punishment?” another user asked.

Han has a 12,500 strong Twitter followers list.

Masturbate now, and have an orgasm too! Show you disdain to the Christian/Muslim/Genital police, and get off!
