When the desire and passion of man is stirred-up due to various influencing factors, it ventures to search for the correct path for satisfaction. Instead of finding the door open, it finds it closed. Consequently, it chooses the corrupted and distorted paths. Here it finds the doors wide open.
The enemies of Allah Ta’ala have been successful to a considerable extent in achieving their objectives. They have extracted from the Muslim Ummah such youth whose primary concern is the fulfillment of carnal appetite. These youth have surrendered to the attack of the enemies.
Their greatest desire is to enter into the world of arts, sports and fashion. They have been nurtured from childhood with lust, passion and lowly-desires. When they think, they think of evil. The beating of their heart is also for evil. They live, sleep and eat yearning for vice. These youth have thus only excelled in sports, music and hair styling. When the condition of the youth has become such, then the fall of the Ummah and the collapse of society is evident.
Amongst the distorted ways towards which the youth have resorted to satisfy their lust is masturbation – a fast spreading, vile act. This vile act has become common amongst a large sector of youth. Many young boys and girls have become entrapped in the snare of masturbation. Hence, it is necessary to explain the law of Islam with regard to this evil act, to list its harms and disastrous consequences and to prescribe some medicine and treatment to root out this shameful act. These are a few words before you, O Beloved Reader!
So that it could become a brick in the building of Islamic knowledge and a step on the straight path. May Allah Ta’ala grant us the ability to benefit from it. Ameen.
