Islamic view on intimate video chat with husband
For the past 5 months my husband is not near me, as he got a job abroad and had to go. As he finds it very difficult to stay without me (especially as he cannot sexually satisfy himself without me), he applied for family visa for me and our son, but it got rejected twice.
He used to ask me to send him my partially exposed photos, so that he can view them when he feels sexually aroused. I obeyed him as I thought it might help him when he gets tempted (especially in this modern era where women shamelessly go in the public by exposing their aurahs, even in their job sectors!). We also used to chat with video via internet. But once during an intimate video chat, he asked me to expose myself(above waist) as he felt sexually aroused and he asked if he could masturbate himself by viewing me in the video.
Both of us were not sure about the islamic view in such a case. But I felt pity for him, for being devoid of any sexual pleasure for the past 5 months (while we used to have sex atleast once in every 4-5 days when he was here with me). So I did as he wished and he finally ended up masturbating. Obviously he took bath after that to purify himself before prayer.
I want to know whether we have commited a sin(as he masturbated and I didn't stop him from doing that)? If so, then what is a married man supposed to do when he gets sexually aroused while he is away from his wife for long (as marriage is the only lawful key to sexually satisfy oneself)?
Please note that his application for family visa got rejected twice. Neither will he get enough leave from job to come back to India now as its just 5 months since he entered the job. Expecting a reply at the earliest.
