It has long been claimed that masturbation causes hairy hands, blindness or stunted growth.But now a Muslim preacher has warned that men who self-pleasure will make their hands pregnant when they enter the afterlife. Preacher Mucahid Cihad Han looked puzzled while answering a viewer's question about masturbation on Turkish television. The caller said he "kept masturbating", despite being married and even partook in the dirty act during an annual pilgrimage to Mecca. But Han then warned the man that masturbation is forbidden in Islam. He continued: “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." “If our viewer was single, I could recommend he marry, but what can I say now?” the self-proclaimed televangelist added. He also advised the viewer to “resist Satan’s temptations". Han was mocked on social media after declaring his fatwa on masturbation. “Are there any hand-gynaecologists in the afterlife? Is abortion allowed there?” one Twitter user said. Another added: “So you think that being pregnant is a God-given punishment?"
