Question

It is allowed to use sex instruments in Islam like Penis (vibrators and other sex instruments) for single woman and man?

Answer

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.
According to Sharia it is unlawful, for the Muslim to use these instruments. Their users are contradicting the correct Fitra (human beings' natural predispositions) and going beyond what Allah has made lawful to them. Allah Says (interpretation of meaning): {And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts). Except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, for then, they are free from blame; But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors;}[23:5-7].
Using such instruments have very bad side affects on the person using them. It makes the person lose interest in the opposite sex and this is against the natural law of the cosmos and it can lead to disaster. Allah Says (interpretation of meaning): {And that He (Allâh) creates the pairs, male and female, From Nutfah (drops of semen male and female discharges) when it is emitted;}[53:45-46].
The use of vibrators and similar sexual instruments causes defects to the genital parts of their user. We advise whoever can not marry to avoid Haram (forbidden) means as they can never be a cure. We advise him/her to apply the Sharia remedy to sexual desire that is fasting, lowering the gaze and abiding by what Allah has prescribed and avoiding what He has forbidden.
Allah knows best.
