We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Dear sister, it is absolutely prohibited for a believer to do masturbation or to watch ‘fahisha’ contents. A believer should absolutely abstain from doing such things, as these things would only invite the wreath of Allah, the humiliation in this world and the distress in hereafter.

Dear sister, the yellowish or brownish discharge counts for nothing, as reported in these narrations.

It was narrated that Umm 'Atiyyah said:"We did not think anything of the yellowish or brownish discharge." (Sahih) (Another chain) It was narrated that Umm 'Atiyyah said: "We did not think that the yellowish or brownish discharge counted for anything." Muhammad bin Yahya said: "Wuhaib (who narrated the second version) is the better of them with this according to us." Ibn Majah [Vol. 1, Book 1, Hadith 647]

It was narrated that Muhammad said: "Umm 'Atiyah said: 'We used not to regard yellowish and brownish discharge as anything important.'" Sahih (Darussalam) Sunan an-Nasa'I [Vol. 1, Book 3, Hadith 368]

Thus from the above guidance one does not need to perform gusul after the discharge of yellowish or brownish discharge.

Dear sister, it is indeed good that you have realized and recognized the evil habit of watching obscene contents. The obscenity is nowadays a strong weapon of the accursed shaitan to mislead mankind.

(... And establish regular prayer for verily, prayer restrains [the worshipper] from shameful and unjust deeds...) Quran[ 29: 45]

Dear sister, Verily, the Salah prevents from immoral sins and evil wicked deeds. Ibn `Awn Al-Ansari said: "When you are praying, you are doing good, it is keeping you away from immoral sins and evil wicked deeds and what you are doing is part of the remembrance of the lord, most high.''

Dear sister, since you are ashamed of your actions the first and foremost you should do is to turn back to Allah in sincere repentance, and it is absolutely expected that you will find your lord most merciful and oft-forgiving. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
