Chastity and Porn

Assalamu Alaykum Sir, what does losing chastity actually means in Quranic terms? What type of acts make person unchaste? Does doing masturbation and watching porn looses girl's chastity? If she never had any sexual relations with any man and if she always maintains distance with every man. I know masturbation & watching porn are grave sins and one should not do it, but I really want to know that will she not be able to marry a chaste man, As she is not a fornicatress (Zani) who only has to  marry a fornicator. 

I was discussing the same thing with my friend and she told me that if a girl who maturbated can marry a chaste man IF she sincerely make taubah, other wise she will not be allowed to marry a chaste man, and I suddenly thought that one cannot marry a chaste man if he/she did actual Zina (sexual intercourse or any type of homosexual intercourse) until he/she repents. But the person who did masturbation or watching porn do not lie in the category of actual Zina (sexual intercourse), so she can marry a chaste man. Right? This is soo confusing, waiting for your answer sir!

الجواب وبالله التوفيق      

  1. In view of the Qur’aan, Chaste is one who is pure of the taints of fornication or adultery.
  2. Watching porn and masturbation are Haraam but the doer of such actions will not be called Un-Chaste.
  3. One who has committed the sins of watching porn and masturbation, it’s permissible for such person too to marry a Chaste person.
