A LIE OF RAFIDAH Against Ibn al Qayyim


A LIE OF RAFIDAH against Ibn al Qayyim, that He said: “Masturbation is allowed for men and women”, They have quoted that Ibn al Qayyim said:

“And if a woman had no husband and her temptation grew stronger, it is said by some of our companions that it is permissible for her to behold a ‘Akrabanj’ (which is made of leather) for her to use, or the use of cucumbers or small percussion or what is similar to that.” [Bada’i Al-Fuwa’id 4/96-97]

These are not the words of Ibn al Qayyim, rather he was quoting Ibn Aqil, and right after that He refuted this opinion by saying:

والصحيح عندي أنه لا يباح لأن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم إنما أرشد صاحب الشهوة إذا عجز عن الزواج إلى الصوم

“And the correct opinion according to us (Ibn al Qayyim) is that it is not allowed, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) advised those who have sexual urge and who were unable to marry to fast instead.” [Bada’i Al-Fuwa’id 4/97]

The Prophet peace be upon him , said: “O young people, whoever among you can marry, should marry, because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty and whoever is not able to marry should fast, as fasting diminishes the sexual urge.”
