If I am very hot and horny (sorry for language) and I want to have sex with somebody. Instead of this to stop myself for doing zinaa I'm going to masturbate. According to fiqh it is better to do the less bad one. So masturbating shouldn't be that bad in this situation. I know looking at sexual videos is haraam, but to stimulate myself is it also haraam to think about someone (in a sexual way) you know or have seen in real life to stimulate yourself or is this also haraam?

Masturbation in form of self-stimulation is forbidden in Shi'ah fiqh. While describing the believers, the Qur'an says,

"The believers are... those who protect their sexual organs except from their spouses... Therefore, whosoever seeks more beyond that [in sexual gratification], then they are the transgressors." (23:5-6)

The last sentence makes it very clear that any sexual gratification outside marriage is considered a transgression of the law of God.
