Question: If a girl masturbates in front of another girl without touching her is it lesbian intercourse or actual fornication in Islam?
Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.
Masturbation is impermissible and sinful.
However, it is not fornication (zina) whether or not a person is present.

Masturbation has many personal and societal ill-effects that are known and recognized in sane traditional societies and by balanced people. The early Muslims used to say, “The one who weds his hand is accursed.” [Ibn Humam, Fath al-Qadir]

And Allah alone gives success.
