Muslim Televangelist Tells Masturbating Men Their “Hands Will Become Pregnant In Afterlife”

Just when you thought you have heard it all, a Muslim televangelist is now claiming that a man would meet his masturbating hand “pregnant in the afterlife” and “asking for its rights.”

Mücahid Cihad Han caused a stir on Turkish social media this weekend when the televangelist answered viewers’ questions on private television station 2000 TV.

A viewer wrote in telling Han he “kept masturbating, although he was married, and even during the Umrah,” a pilgrimage to Mecca performed by Muslims, reports HurriyetDaily.

The man then repeated the question a few more times before Han responded by claiming Islam strictly prohibits masturbation as a “haram” (forbidden) act.

“Moreover, one hadith states that those who have sexual intercourse with their hands will find their hands pregnant in the afterlife, complaining against them to God over its rights,” he said.

HurriyetDaily adds:

“Istimna,” the Arabic term for masturbation that Han also referred to, is a controversial issue in Islam, as there have been varying opinions on its permissibility throughout history. The Quran has no clear reference to masturbation and the authenticity of many hadiths is questionable.

Despite Han’s assertive religious stance, only a limited number of Islamic interpretations categorize masturbation as “haram,” while most of others call it a “makruh” (disliked) act. Many of the mainstream Islamic interpretations even allow it in certain conditions, like if the act could be used to avoid the temptation of an extramarital affair.

Twitter had a field day with Cihad’s comments, one user asked “Are there any hand-gynaecologists in the afterlife? Is abortion allowed there?” Another asked: “So you think that being pregnant is a God-given punishment?”
