I am a 16 year old Muslim girl and i have an issue. I started masturbating at age 13 and i am now 16. after starting to get much more religious, i now understand why i shouldn’t masturbate. i masturbated once in ramadan during my period but i have since not done it not do i plan on doing it again.

the trouble is that i keep getting sexual urges. i never even watch pornographic material. i just am trying to sleep and then i start to feel sexual frustrations and urges for no reason.

every time i look up islamic answers on how to stop these urges, the answers are always tailored to men or telling me not to look at things which cause the urge to masturabte. but i never do.

so my question is, how can i stop the need to masturbate? i cant find any non-islamic answers so now i have come here hoping to find help.

As you're a girl, here's my adaptation of a very useful treatment that helped a guy friend. It's a bit harsh... but worth it.

When excited, slap your thing until it turns red or hurts very bad. Then remember how death is more painful, and a certain Hellfire, which is black because of its heat. Also, wear a ring or wristband with Allah's name on it, as every time you reach for your thing, you'll at least notice that someone is watching...

First of all there isn't a direct quote from the Quran which forbids masturbation. See this article for more details. There is no reason to believe you will face "a certain Hellfire, which is black because of its heat" as El Flea suggests.

An increase in hormone levels is also completely natural during your period - it will result in increased sexual desires. It is important to understand your cycle and the effects it will have on your body.

Aside from that there are plenty of people who feel masturbation effects their day to day life. If you want to avoid masturbation for your own reasons - understanding the above:

  • Keep busy - The hardest time to stop yourself is when you feel bored and aren't otherwise occupied. Read a book at night, listen to a podcast or whatever it is that occupies your mind.
  • Consider your own reasons for wanting to stop. When you feel the desire try to think of these before you continue, go through the list.
  • Forgive yourself for lapses, your body is sending you all sorts of signals - especially at your age - and those are difficult to fight. Beating yourself up every time won't help, it will only make you feel guilty and can lead to an unhealthy relationship with sex and your own body.
