Masturbation will leave hands pregnant in afterlife: Muslim televangelist

Published: May 26, 2015


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.

    But how do you control masturbation when you are not married? And don’t have the money to get married?
    And what about those science facts that tell that masturbation is better? :)Recommend

    Such pity. Sadness. People dont study religion and come up with such non sense. Without knowledge without evidence launch there Fatwa. You will only know in afterlife the Creator who can create this normal pregnancy process can do anything. You are not mocking him You are mocking God. People who masturbate will have pain in there hands just as a mother as pain in her sensitive part. Just as He has punishment for a murderer He has punishment for every small sin. Its not your body. You never booked this body or ordered it when you were in womb. It belongs to God and its a test. If its normal to this society does not mean its not a sin its not bad. Its not you who defines the rules. The one Who created this universe, does. Even all the planet, all the skies, all the heavens stands againts His rules and law. Doesn’t matter. He cant be forced or surppressed ever.Recommend

    I don’t know whether to laugh or feel ashamed of these topics to discuss publicly. We should leave few things out of Islam regime and not to enlightened them for the sake of discussion. Remember we as a followers are at a level where we are the most evil from rest of religions because of our deeds and thoughts. We have in-dignified our religion and we continue to do so. Remember what happen to Bagdad when Qublai attack them and decapitated all.Recommend

    This is a sad and depressing comment. Goes to show how educated or well equipped our so called scholars in dealing with such a huge yet unspoken matter. I would advise my muslim fellows who are dealing with masturbation or sexual addiction, please see www. purifyyourgaze .com and get expert help.Recommend

    @abdullah, bro do not type quickly… you said many wrong things through mistakes by typing fast i guess… anyways, in islam to control these urges you either marry or you fast… no other solution… only when you are in danger of committing adultery should you use masturbation… and a man is cursed in islam, who does not marry because he thinks he does not have enough money… infact, in islam it is recommended that to solve the problem of low income, you should get married… it is a pity people trying to justify this act by using lame logic… the same people who will be shocked when i “claim” that democracy=shirk… shameRecommend

    Why many are blaming this televangelist?

    It is the caller who is stupid. Trying to find an answer to anything and everything in the religion is stupidity.

    The televangelist tried to dissuade the caller as best as he can by infusing some fear.Recommend

    there is no money required for a marriag in islam. a simple wedding with witnesses and thats it. its not intended to be a lavish affair. so marriage is absolutely affordable to everyone. and if someone is so poor they cant afford even a simple marriage, those around them should pay for their marriage. masturbation is a sin in islam and leads to much worse.

    Masturbation is a natural process and has beneficial psychological effect in the form of release of frustration and stress. Release of body fluids is natural, keep it that way! Recommend
