Because I am jobless at the age of 28 and I am unmarried, my parents don't think I am ready for marriage. Sometimes I see a girl who just crossed in front of me, or just passes beside me and she is beautiful. After seeing her, I feel as if I could have sex with her. When these thoughts occur, I become erect and I want to fulfill my lust.

I know it can't be possible because it is Haram in Islam to do Zina, at the same time it is also a bitter truth that I want to satisfy myself. In order to not go towards Zina, I try to satisfy myself with masturbation.

In that condition is it Haram?

There is difference of opinion among scholars whether masturbations' is sin or not. There are scholars who said هو ماؤك فأهرقه ( it is your water, so pour it out). I don't remember the reference.

For most of boys, if they don't masturbate, they will end up having nocturnal emission. it is similar to masturbation in dream. I don't understand how some deed done during dream can be halal and the same when done otherwise is haram.

Allah knows best.
