Is Kegel Exercise Permissible For Men?

Answered by Mawlana Ilyas Patel


I’m currently single and 24 years old. I feel like I’m suffering from premature ejaculation as I feel like ejaculating even on thoughts and feelings. This makes me feel insecure and anxious when thinking about my married life. Furthermore, I have been facing urine drop problems after using the washroom. Kegel exercises are suggested for the cure of both these problems. I wanted to know whether performing those exercises to strengthen my pelvic floor muscle is permissible or, if not, what is the recommended way?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate.

I pray you are in good faith and health. Thank you for your question.

Kegel exercises are permissible and highly beneficial for both – men and women. Don’t worry. This is due to your reaching marriageable age. I pray you find a suitable and righteous match, Amin.

Do Kegel exercises; they will prevent or control urinary incontinence, other pelvic floor problems, and premature ejaculation. Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which support the uterus, bladder, small intestine, and rectum. You can do Kegel exercises, also known as pelvic floor muscle training, anytime. See the links below.

I would like you to go through the valuable answers and links below. You will receive guidance and direction, in sha’ Allah.
