There is a hadith with such a meaning:

يجيء الناكح يده يوم القيامة ويده حبلى

The one who masturbates with his hand will come on the Day of Judgement and his hand shall be pregnant

Shu'ab al-Eemaan

It is weak.

  • So can one do tawbah and be forgiven? Commented Jul 25, 2021 at 20:45
  • I mean if he does tawbah and gets forgiven is it Possible he doesn't gets this punishment? Commented Jul 25, 2021 at 20:45

It's always difficult to say that a certain hadith does not exist but it is quite certain that there is no sahih or Hasan hadith like that because the teaching that masturbation is haram is only based on the interpretation of Al-Muminun [23:5-7] [1]
