"Men who masturbate their hands will become pregnant in the afterlife," said Turkish preacher Mucahid Cihad Han during a live TV interview after a questioner confessed that he "kept masturbating even though he was married".
Han, who has over 12,500 followers on Twitter, urged him to "resist Satan's temptations", adding: "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."

He didn't specify whether this means that your hands would have babies, or lots of tiny little other hands.
Han was mocked on Turkish social media following the broadcast on May 25, after newspapers published his latest television 'fatwa.'
'Istimna,' the Arabic term for masturbation, is a controversial issue in Islam and there are questions over whether it is permissible given that it is not clearly referenced in The Quran.
