Pearl of Wisdom

who was then a Zaydi, narrated, 'I went to Baghdad. While I was there, I saw the people congratulating each other all of a sudden, exchanging honourable greetings and standing up. I asked, 'What is this?' They replied, 'The son of al-Rida [has come].' Then I said, 'Indeed I must see him'. Then he appeared on a male or female donkey. I said, may the curse of Allah be upon the supporters of Imama who believe that Allah has made obedience to this [type of person] mandatory.' At that very moment, he turned to me and said, ?O sim b. 'Abd al-Rahman, Are we to follow a lone human from ourselves?! Indeed then we would be in error and madness. [He continued]: 'So I said to myself, 'A sorcerer, by Allah!', and he turned to me again, and said, Has the Reminder been cast upon him from among us? Rather he is a self-conceited liar. [He continued]: 'So I left, believing in Imama and bore witness that verily he is the proof of Allah on His creation and had faith in him.'

Question : #429 Category: Medical Issues
Subject: is masturbation allowed here?
Question: A man cannot impregnate [sterile] and asks the doctor to determine the reason for his sterility through an examination of his sperm. The emission (of such semen) is obtained by the use of an instrument attached to his genitals and, by its movements, causes a discharge. Is this to be considered as masturbation and thus forbidden, or is it allowed for the purpose of the examination? And does it matter whether the patient is in difficulty or is acting out of necessity?
Answer: Yes, it is considered as masturbation. It is not allowed unless the examination requires it. It is equally so for reliance upon that except under the previous two situations [difficulty and necessity], assuming, as does your question that some definitive result can be determined from it. Allah knows best.
