Mucahid Cihad Han made the bizarre statement during an appearance on 2000 TV while taking part in a Q&A session with viewers. The self-styled Muslim televangelist was told by a questioner that he "kept masturbating even though he was married" and asked Mr Han for advice.
Urging viewers to "resist Satan’s temptations", he told the questioner: "Moreover, one hadith states that those who have sexual intercourse with their hands will find their hands pregnant in the afterlife, complaining against them to God over its rights. "If our viewer was single, I could recommend he marry, but what can I say now?"
But the bizarre claims invited nothing but ridicule when social media users came across the comments, which were made on Sunday. Mr Han has a large following however, boasting 12,500 followers on Twitter.
