Answer:

Acts of Fahisha

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 33:

33      Say: The things that my Lord hath indeed forbidden are: ‘fahisha’ (shameful or indecent deeds) whether open or secret; sins and trespasses against truth or reason; assigning of partners to Allah for which he hath given no authority; and saying things about Allah of which ye have no knowledge.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 151:

151    Say: "Come I will rehearse what Allah hath (really) prohibited you from": join not anything as equal with Him; be good to your parents: kill not your children on a plea of want;  We provide sustenance for you and for them;  come not (even) nigh to ‘fahisha’ (shameful or indecent deeds) whether open or secret; take not life which Allah hath made sacred except by way of justice and law: thus doth He command you that ye may learn wisdom.

The Arabic and Quranic term ‘fahisha’ (translated lewdness) is used for absolutely every type of sexual indecency, lewdness, vulgarity, filthiness, profanity, etc. and each and every single manifestation of the evil of ‘faahisha’ is absolutely forbidden for the believers who sincerely believe in Allah and the Last Day.

Such is the despise of ‘fahisha’ in the Sight of Allah Subhanah that not only has He Declared it and its every manifestation absolutely forbidden, prohibited and ‘haraam’ for the believers, but the Lord Most Majestic Most Supreme has Commanded His believing slaves to come not (even) nigh to ‘fahisha’ (shameful or indecent deeds) whether open or secret!

Q-1: Is it ok to be nude if u are a male in front of another male?

The absolute minimum ‘satr’ or body parts which a believing male is prohibited to expose in the presence of anyone except one’s wives in Shariah are the body parts from between his navel and his knees inclusive….thus it would be absolutely prohibited in Islam for a believing male to expose any part of his ‘satr’ before another male.


Q-2 Is it ok to touch their penis if you are a male too?

When it is categorically prohibited in Islam for a believing male to expose his ‘satr’ to anyone (except one’s wife), the question of touching the private parts of another male should not even arise!


Q-3: Is it ok to take pictures of your erected penis and show it to another male?

Q-4: Is it ok to take pictures of your erected penis and put it on the net?

To expose one’s ‘satr’, physically or through pictures to anyone would be absolutely forbidden in Islam and a manifest act of ‘fahisha’ and indecency in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.


Q-5: Is it ok to feel and rub your penis but not until semen coumes out?

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4886  Narrated by Anas ibn Malik

That he heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) say: ‘The eye commits ‘zina’, and the palm of the hand, the foot, the body, the tongue and private part of the body confirm it or deny it.’

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.260         Narrated by Ibn Abbas

I have not seen a thing resembling 'lamam' (minor sins) than what Abu Huraira narrated from the Prophet (saws) who said "Allah has written for the children of Adan their share of ‘zina’ which he commits inevitably. The ‘zina’ of the eyes is the sight (to gaze at a forbidden thing), the ‘zina’ of the tongue is the talk, and the inner self wishes and desires and the private parts testify all this or deny it."

Although one would naturally touch their private parts when washing it or taking a bath, to approach one’s private part with the intention of ‘fahisha’ or indecency, absolutely regardless of whether done openly or in secrecy, would be deemed a sin in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
