I am a Muslim woman, single. I know masturbation is wrong according to Islamic law. But, whenever I go to sleep I cannot control myself. I try to read Surah Al-Fatiha as it usually helps me with many things, but nothing works. I sleep on my right side as I read/ heard that might help, but it does not help, i still get the feelings. Another way I try to control myself is I breathe hard while having my eyes closed. These things all helped me to not touch myself too much, but no matter what I do, the sex organ is "active" at night and that makes it difficult for me to even control myself even when I sleep on my right side. To avoid this, the thing I have to do is to orgasm using a pillow.
I want to make clear that I have learned to not masturbate during the day/ daylight(that is one improvement for me).
So, I want to ask to you Muslim women, first of all, am I having a psychological problem with my brain? Is this normal or not? If not, what should I do?
