Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

 

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

 

Masturbation is a major sin and an evil habit which should be abandoned. You should bear in mind that Allah sees all things even those that are done in darkness and in privacy. Fear Allah and do not commit sins as that incurs the anger of Allah.

 

It is stated in  العناية شرح الهداية  (Inayah - Sharah Hidayah) that Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihi wa Salam cursed the one that is married to his hands, that is the one who masturbates.[1]

 

Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihi wa Salam said that one should fast to suppress his carnal desires until he/she is able to get married.[2]

 

Ghusl will become compulsory on one who masturbates and semen is discharged. (Bahishti Zewar Vol. 1 Pg 72).

 

You cannot simply wear clean clothes after discharging. You should first make ghusl then wear clean clothes.

 

 

 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
