Answer

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

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

 

Respected sister in Islam,

It is Haram (strictly prohibited) for an unmarried girl to imagine having intercourse with her future husband and to attain climax. That is also regarded as masturbation which is immoral and a sinful act.

Safeguard all your limbs from committing immoral acts. The eyes, ears and heart will be questioned for the immorality they commit. Allah Taa’la says:

إِنَّ السَّمْعَ وَالْبَصَرَ وَالْفُؤَادَ كُلُّ أُولَئِكَ كَانَ عَنْهُ مَسْئُولًا

Translation: “Indeed, the hearing, the sight and the heart - about all those, one will be questioned”. Surah Al-Israa 36

Likewise, it is stated in a Hadith:

عن أبي هريرة، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم، قال: كتب على ابن آدم نصيبه من الزنا، مدرك ذلك لا محالة، فالعينان زناهما النظر، والأذنان زناهما الاستماع، واللسان زناه الكلام، واليد زناها البطش، والرجل زناها الخطا، والقلب يهوى ويتمنى، ويصدق ذلك الفرج ويكذبه

Translation:Abu Huraira Radhyallahu Anhu narrated that Nabi Sallallahu Alihi Wasallam said: “Allah fixed the very portion of adultery which a man will indulge in. There would be no escape from it. The adultery of the eye is the lustful look and the adultery of the ears is listening to sinful (song or talk) and the adultery of the tongue is immoral speech and the adultery of the hand is the lustful grip (embrace) and the adultery of the feet is to walk (to the place) where he intends to commit adultery and the heart yearns and desires which he may or may not put into effect”. Sahih Muslim 4/2047

Sister, imagining and fantasizing immoral acts could lead to an addiction that may lead one to commit immoral acts. Allah Taa’la says:

و لا تقربوا الزنا انه كان فاحشة و ساء سبيلا

Translation: And do not approach unlawful sexual intercourse. Indeed, it is ever an immorality and is evil as a way”. Surah Al-Israa 32

We advise you to exercise restraint. Maintain your chastity and turn to Allah Taa’la with dua, salah, dhikr and ask Allah Taa’la to grant you a compatible marriage partner. Inshallah, that will invoke the mercy of Allah Taa’la. Do not commit evil and immoral acts. That will deprive you of the mercy of Allah Taa’la. We make Dua that Allah Taa’la grant you a compatible partner.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
