Part 01 of 02

1. The first thing to note if you want to stop masturbation should be solely following Allah's orders and fearing His punishment.

2. The best solution to stop masturbation is marriage, there hasten to marry.

3. Keep yourself busy always as it will distract your attention from masturbation.

4. Lowe your gaze from looking at people who wear Haram dresses and also stop watching Haram movies, pictures, porn graphics etc...
Allah orders men and women to lower their gaze as shown in the following two verses and in the Prophet's hadith.
"Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things) and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is all-aware of what they do. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things) and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts."
(Quran 24: 30-31)

The Prophet (s.a.w) said: "Do not follow a casual unintentional look at forbidden things with another look." 
(Al-Tirmidhi, 2777) 

This is a general instruction by the Prophet to abstain from all that may sexually excite a person because it might lead him/her to commit the haram.

5. Use your available leisure time in worshipping Allah and increasing religious knowledge.

6. Being cautious not to develop any of the medical symptoms that may result from masturbation such as weak eyesight, weak nervous system, and/or back pain.

 More importantly, feelings of guilt and anxiety that can be complicated by missing obligatory prayers because of the need to janaba always after every incidence of masturbation, especially in the winter, and the invalidating of the fast.

7. Avoiding the illusion that some youth have that masturbation is permissible because it prevents them from committing illegal sexual acts such as fornication or even homosexuality, while they may not be at the gates of that immorality to begin with.

8. Strengthening your willpower and not surrendering to the shaytan, and avoiding spending time alone, try and be in midst of people always.

9. Follow the Prophet's aforementioned hadeeth and fasting when possible, because fasting will temper your exual desire and keep it under control. However, you should not overreact and swear by Allah not to return to the act because if you do not honor your Promise, you would be facing the consequences of not living up to your oath to Allah.

10. Trying to follow the Prophet's recommendation concerning the etiquette of getting ready for bed, such making Dua, sleeping on the right side, and avoiding sleeping on the belly (the Prophet-peace and blessings be upon him- forbade sleeping on the belly).

11. Striving hard to be patient and chaste, because persistence will eventually, Allah willing, lead to attaining those qualities as second nature, as the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) explains in the following hadith:
"Whoever seeks chastity Allah will make him chaste, and whoever seeks help from none but Allah, He will help him, and whoever is patient He will make it easy for him, and no one has ever been given anything better than patience."

12. If you falls into this sin, you must hasten to repent, asking forgiveness from Allah, doing good deeds, and not losing hope and feeling despair; these are all prerequisites to curing this problem. 

13. Finally, Allah is the Most Merciful and He always responds to whoever calls on Him. So, asking for Allah's forgiveness and help will be accepted, by His will.
