This was a warning issued by a Turkish Islam preacher
Muslim televangelist Mücahid Cihad Han delivered a hilarious Sunday sermon on the 24th when he warned men they would meet their masturbating hand “pregnant in the afterlife”. If a pregnant hand (Palm-ella Hand-erson?) wasn’t scary enough, the hand would also be “asking for its rights,” Hurriyet Daily News reported. This was his response to a viewers’ question on private TV station 2000 TV when a viewer mentioned that he “kept masturbating, although he was married, and even during the Umrah,” a Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca.
Han said that Islam considered masturbation “haram” (forbidden). “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, referring to what he claimed to be a saying of Prophet Muhammad. “If our viewer was single, I could recommend he marry, but what can I say now?”
Mücahid then advised the man to “resist Satan’s temptations.” In Islam, “Istimna,” (masturbation) is controversial, as there is no clear reference to the act in the Quran. However, it is considered “makruh” (disliked) .
Han, who has more than 12,000 followers on Twitter, was mocked on Turkish social media after newspapers published his television “fatwa”.
“Are there any hand-gynaecologists in the afterlife? Is abortion allowed there?” one Twitter user asked.
“So you think that being pregnant is a God-given punishment?” another user asked.
